Abstract

Adams shares a brief personal experience of the encounters she came across while teaching an undergraduate food studies seminar.  The content used throughout the course highlighted the intersections of food, social justice, and local politics.  Additionally, she analyzes how these intersections can influence disordered eating habits of the college students participating in the seminar.  Her method involves demonstrating how standards of health are culturally specific as means to help the students understand their own habits within their own contexts.
