INTH-401 The Ecology of Global Hunger
Spring for 2007-2008
Adult education approaches are used as a basis for self directed learning in this seminar as it explores the various factors contributing to global hunger and food insecurity. Cultural, racial, gender, religious and age differences are examined as they pertain to the existence of poverty, hunger and food insecurity with a view to establishing and recognizing human values. This is an interdisciplinary course requiring learning facilitators with expertise in global economics, demography, sociology, food technology, agriculture, emergency food delivery systems, urbanization, natural and man-made disaster relief, anthropology, global infant and maternal health status, epidemiology, and environmental sciences. Students will be encouraged to examine their own reactions to these factors as they relate to marginalized groups, through readings and community projects.
