This class was originally designed in intercultural collaboration with the elective entitled “Eat, Drink: East Asia” to be offered by Dr. Karen Kingsbury at Chatham University. It involves students from Tunghai University and Chatham University in an exploration of food, culture, and writing in the East Asian context (China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan). Students will study the meanings of food culture in East Asia, gender and family dynamics, and the transformations of the East Asian cuisines in the U.S. To help students approach these major topics from local and global views, a class blog will be set up to facilitate intercultural collaboration/peer interaction.
