What is the course about?

GDAR1026 introduces students to central issues of food culture through a range of theoretical approaches drawn from the Humanities and Social Sciences. Through critically evaluating the practices of food production, distribution and consumption, the course aims to engage students in an informed discussion about their relationship to food in local and global contexts.

What do the students say about this course?

譚迪詩博士安排的其中一項習作頗有新意,是一種稱為Pecha Kucha的presentation方式。整份presentation只以20張圖片製成20張slides,每張slide只有20秒時間表達內容,這考驗我們如何挑選資料並簡單扼要地進行匯報。短時間的口頭報告及減少使用文字,能令台下同學更專注於匯報,並且增加互動性。
