The History of Chocolate, Coffee, and Tobacco
Wednesdays, 5:45 - 7:45 pm
February 27 - April 24 (class will not meet on March 27)

This seminar delves into the cultural, social, political, and economic history of chocolate, coffee, and tobacco. An exploration of discovery experiences, adaptation and appropriation, industrialization, globalization, and advertising will inform our discussion of modern-day consumption. By investigating medical claims and trends in who consumed these stimulants and in what formats, we'll extract the myths from the "true history" of these stimulating substances. For the first session, please read the first three chapters of The True History of Chocolate and the first two chapters of Tobacco: A Cultural History of How an Exotic Plant Seduced Civilization. Eight sessions, $190.

Emily Winerock holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Toronto.
