I'll be teaching a full-year anthro course on food/nutrition, next
academic season, and would be happy to exchange ideas about books,
articles, and films. I am particularly interested in something that can
serve as a textbook. Most of my own bibliography is a bit out-of-date, as
I last taught this class some years ago (using Marvin Harris's Riddles of
Food and Culture, among other things). If folks will send their
suggestions directly to me, I will summarize to the list if warranted.
