Food in Our Lives

During the 2005-06 academic year, Hartwick students, faculty, and staff are taking an in-depth look at our society's relationship to food. Numerous courses will address food in one way or another, from nutrition to psychology, from economics to politics, from literature to biotechnology. 

In addition, we are inviting speakers, hosting a film series, and supporting continuing student involvement in food issues in our area. Our goal is for members of the Hartwick community and people from the Oneonta region to come away from the year with a better understanding of questions of justice in the production and distribution of this necessity and a heightened awareness of how food is represented in the culture.
