  To write about food is to write about life. Representations of the restaurant experience, in particular, can convey with great economy key social ideals and problems: definitions of identity, community, and “taste,” issues of consumerism, and concepts of both physical and spiritual hunger. This course focuses on the restaurant as a significant social site and literary setting, and on texts that reflect and help to create that significance. Readings will include plays, films, poems and short stories, as well as classics of culinary nonfiction (restaurant reviews, essays, memoirs, and investigative journalism). The course will help students develop writing and research skills, with focus on the techniques of critical and literary analysis. The course has a community learning component focused upon the restaurant culture(s) of Hartford.
