Food: Communion, Community, and Creation
This course has been cancelled for the Summer 2015 session. We apologize for the inconvenience!
Eating is one of the most profound ways we are related to each other, to the created world, and to God. Within the framework of Christian theology, consider some of the biological, ecological, psychological, aesthetic, spiritual, agricultural, and economic aspects of what, why, and how we eat. This course takes place on Galiano Island, and is offered in partnership with A Rocha Canada, with contributions from Matthew Humphrey and Shauna and David Anderson. Also contributing is Janet Greenman.
Maximum enrollment: 20 credit students, no auditors.
Additional course fee: $650
Location: This course takes place off-site on Galiano Island.
Note: This course has a special registration process. Due to the great popularity of this course in past years, and to ensure fairness for all students, registration will be based on a lottery system. Registration for this course will open at 10 am PST on Wednesday, February 25, 2015. All registrations received within the first 24 hours (until 10 am PST on February 26) will be placed in a pool, from which students will be chosen by random selection until the maximum enrollment has been reached. Any students remaining in the pool will be chosen by random selection to determine their spot on the waitlist. Any registrations received after 10 am on February 26 will then be added to the waitlist (or to the course, if space permits) in the order they are received. Students will be notified by email regarding their placement in the course (or on the waitlist) within three business days.
Although this course is an elective and not a requirement for any program, some students may find it especially well-suited to the focus of their program (depending, for example, on their MA concentration). In order to appeal for special consideration for placement in this course, contact the Senior Academic Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than February 18. Note that special consideration will be considered only where it is demonstrated that a course is integral to one’s concentration.
The deadline for dropping the course with a 100% refund is 4:30 pm on April 24. Payment deadline for all course tuition and fees is also April 24. There are no refunds after April 24, but this course may be dropped without refund until May 8.
