CRITICAL STUDIES ON FOOD SYSTEMS AND SUSTAINABILITY IN VIETNAM
Vietnam is an extraordinary country, filled with a remarkable history and culture, and a visual feast for the eyes. This program makes extensive use of the whole country as a site. Students will encounter and visit more of the country and its features than most travelers, and certainly more than most Vietnamese.
We will study at museums, historic and religious sites, markets, restaurants, and farms as part of regular site visits.
Students will learn sufficient Vietnamese to travel independently and to converse on food related topics. We will interview experts in the Vietnamese food industry, from growers to chefs, as well as experts on the crisis of rice production, food security, and food quality.
All site visits are in support of the courses and includes encouragement to practice Vietnamese conversation.
DURATION: 4-week Full Immersion Program
WHEN: June 18 – July 15, 2018
