Every bite of food we take has repercussions on our bodies, our ecosystem, and our culture. This four-week seminar digs down to the major socioeconomic, medical, ecological, and spiritual roots of our relationship to food. Drawing on up-to-date research and Judeo-Christian heritage, we’ll explore the nature and history of the Western diet, its current ramifications, and inspiring alternatives to heal the food system – many or which are emerging right here in Vancouver.
- The Bread of Life and the importance of “faith in food”
- From eating in paradise to (mis)eating in exile: a historical sketch of the comodification of our food system
- Food, agriculture and the state of the world: socio-ecological considerations brought to the table
- Eating our way towards the City of God: now what?
Instructor: Eduardo Sasso holds a graduate degree in theology from Regent College and is currently finishing a degree in sustainability management at UBC. This seminar stems from his work in Vancouver’s social economy since 2011 and his research internship at A Rocha Canada’s farm in south Surrey.
