Examines a different subject or problem from a comparative framework. Satisfies the Gateways major/minor requirement. Offered: AWSp.

In this class you will learn to better understand the workings of the U.S. food      system (at both an industrial and small scale), and the experience of animals within this system. Using animals in the food system as a case study, this course will       explore notions of power and difference, ethics, responsibility, and creativity in reimagining the status quo. This course will push the boundaries of how we think about difference and discrimination and recognize the intersections between       human and animal oppression. 

 *Important: In addition to the two scheduled class periods on campus, students will participate in  experiential learning at a     local animal sanctuary on Wednesdays from 10:00 - 3:00PM
