Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
write a 3-page double-spaced essay arguing for and explaining your approach to ‘America Eats II’ (a today-version of the original America Eats project, upon which the Kurlansky text is also based). In the process, your essay should articulate critical perspectives on what American foodways reveal about American, and more broadly Western, culture and society.
In other words, imagine you are proposing to re-do the America Eats project. Tell me what kinds of entries you’re going to seek out and include in your book (cite some of the examples you’ve come across in reading and film this term). Be sure to also tell me why these are important for understanding American culture and society.
