Additional Fall 2015 Latin American, Caribbean & Latin@ Studies Courses:

Smith College:

Course Title: FYS 159, What's in a Recipe?
Instructor: Nancy Sternbach
Enrollment: Limited to First Year Students
Class Schedule: M W F 9:00 AM-9:50 AM

Course Description:

What stories do recipes tell? What cultural and familial information is embedded in a recipe? Who wrote the recipe? Why? How does it reflect her (or his) life and times? What do we learn about the geography, history and political economy of a location through recipes? Are recipes a way for an underrepresented group to tell its story or to resist assimilation? Does a recipe bolster or undermine national cooking? This seminar looks at recipes and cookbooks from the Spanish-speaking world (in English) and theories of recipes from a variety of different sources. Our reading informs our writing as we try to establish such connections as the politics of the traveling tomato, the overuse of corn and other indigenous crops of the Americas. How to read, write, construct and deconstruct a recipe informs our collective work in this class. Knowledge of Spanish is useful but not required. Enrollment limited to 16 first-year students. (4 Credits)
