I have participated to this summer school some years ago, ( I am lecturing at the university of Malta on national food identity (a subject highly related to tourism in these Mediterranean archipelago) and it was great.
I met nice people, engaged students
the team was made from researcher from diverse academic worlds which help to create a great atmosphere.
and the location is great if only for the fact that you 're living by the sea! however don't forget your hats! Summer in Malta feels like Hell.
hope to see some you there this summer.

Exactly! I was going to say the same thing. I feel like it is a great opportunity to practice fieldwork for anthropologists. So Lucia, if not this year, think about it for the upcoming year.

hi everyone! Anthropology of food really looks like an interesting field of study. However, it is also under-researched. This is shown by the fact that there are not many graduate programs focusing on this field . So far I have found out that the University of London offers a MA and the University of Indiana offers a PHD in anthropology of food. Anyways, this summer I am going to Gozo (Malta) to write a project about preserving gastronomic heritage through sustainable tourism. In fact I will attend a summer school which will also provide me the opportunity of taking a seminar in anthropology of food. Pretty good!

I heard an NPR story yesterday about the food in Aleppo, Syria one of the oldest cities in the world. It is considered the “Middle East gourmet capital” because it sits on the Silk Road, which carried spices in ancient times. Here is a link to the NPR story

Eastern Oregon University has a great course on the Anthropology of Food & Nutrition ANTH 375 that is available online. Here is the link to the course and to the school which offers quite a few other anthro classes online as well.
