Interdisciplinary Elective Course
HKGS2009 We are what we eat: Hong Kong cuisine here and in America 6 credits
 
This course traces the crystallization of a conscious distinction of Hong Kong food among the residents of the city as well as in regional and global communities. We will explore material and cultural factors that continuously transform the menus and practices of diners in Hong Kong and in Chinese communities overseas. In addition, we will examine how Hong Kong culinary practices paralleled, reinforced, and/or transformed general perceptions of the people of Hong Kong as well as of overseas Chinese (especially Chinese Americans).
