"Pandemic Nutrition,” English 299, will guide you in exploring some of the issues you learn about in NUTR 200 through writing projects that ask questions about access, food sovereignty, food (in)security, and the impacts of insufficient nutrition and malnutrition. Because of our current public health crisis, we will be examining these issues in light of Covid 19 and public health responses (or lack thereof) to it. Whether you intend on a major in nutrition, related science fields, or public health, or you just want to focus on writing in a small intellectual community, this course will offer you opportunities to hone your rhetorical skills. You'll write three “major papers” and a lot of informal responses. And you will have the opportunity to conference your rough draft of each “major paper” with me and your classmates before submitting a final draft.
