The current course aims to analyze the significance of food in modern society and agrofood system in general . Using sociological theories,along with empirical examples, the course seeks to provide an answer to the following critical question: “How is the future of humanity shaped in terms of the future of food?” In addition, the course describes the current state of alimentation as well as of the agrofood system, while it discusses new methods of rebuilding the relationship between the society and the food system.
