SAVE THE DATE!!! June 27 – 29, 2011
Slow Food/Fast Food: Food Cultures Around the World
a workshop for middle and high school teachers presented by
Cornell Educational Resources for International Studies (CERIS)
to be held at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y.
This cross-curriculum workshop will engage educators in activities on integrating world area knowledge through food customs and food production throughout the world. Teachers will learn how food cultures such as fast food franchises, street food and global slow food movements offer mirrors to social, economic, and political situations and contexts. Our goal is to encourage teachers and their students to have a greater understanding of the different regions and cultures of the world through the medium of food while meeting NYS Science and Social Studies/Global History and Geography, and Food and Consumer Science standards. We will offer $250 to cover transportation and accommodation expenses.
For more information please contact: Nicky Koschmann, CERIS Coordinator, by email at, or by phone at 607-255-5475.
Registration is available at:
Sponsored by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, the Southeast Asia Program, the South Asia Program, the Cornell Institute for European Studies, the Institute for African Development, the East Asia Program and the Latin American Studies Program. This workshop is partially funded by the U.S. Department of Education Title VI Program.
