Students from the second year (Food, Wine and Society) will follow the whole course (48 hours 6 cfu).
Conoscenze e abilita' da acquisire: students will be able to understand and analyze from a sociological, and social, point of view key concepts of food and wine cultures, with their relationships, such as tradition, typicality, taste, quality, cultural heritage, terroir, biodiversity, safety, security, sustainability. Also, they will learn to observe the feeding practices of specific contexts (i.e. family, restaurant, social and personal networks) highlighting different model and meanings, especially by a gender, class, age and ethnic standpoint. Mediterranean diet and the food and wine cultures of Veneto will be used as case studies. Beside this, each student will be invited to work independently on a specific case using qualitative methodologies (i.e. interviews, network analysis, analysis of “typical” recipes, food maps). Students will also be invited to improve their capacity to discuss some articles on specific topics, developing an outline of research projects based on a case-study analysis and to present them with the class.
Modalita' di esame: The final mark is made up of three component: class participation, individual project work based on a case-study analysis; oral examination on articles and part of book presented in the class work. Weight of the three components will be provided at the beginning of the lectures.
Criteri di valutazione: Participation: active and critical attitude in lectures and participation to collective discussion.
Individual project work: relevance of the case-study; adequacy of the methodologies; pertinence of the conceptual framework; overall consistency and coordination of the text; overall accuracy; autonomy of the proposed considerations; pertinence of the references.
Oral exam: knowledge of the topics, correct use of the language; capacity to present and discuss topics and to refer to the proposed literature in a critical way; understanding of the relationships among different topics.

Attending students will be assessed on mandatory readings and their work during the course.

Non attending students will be assessed on mandatory readings and further readings to be agreed with the Professor.
