Food For Thought Web Papers

These are the webpapers that emerged from Food for Thought: The Omnivore's Dilemma, a first-semester seminar offered at Bryn Mawr College in Fall 2008. At the end of semester spent thinking together about how we--as “free thinkers” with “open-ended human appetites”--might learn to make thoughtful decisions in the world, students are posting here their work about what issues seem most critical to them...

Take a look around, and feel warmly welcome to respond in the comment area available at the end of each paper. What strikes, intrigues, puzzles you...what, among your reactions, might be of interest or use to the writer, or others in the class, or others who--exploring the internet--might be in search of a thoughtful conversation about how we make choices?
