Essential Questions

When you leave this class, you will know something or will have thought critically about these essential questions:

How does journalism function in a democracy and in what way can journalism about food enable a more informed and participatory democracy?

• Which social, political and environmental issues intersect with food issues and how can a journalist make these connections clear to a reader?

• How can the journalistic principles of objectivity, truth and a process of verification be used to help us understand food and its relation to culture and society?

• What is the concept of truth and why is it important in considering food and culture?
