TO5203 - Hospitality and Gastronomy: Social, Private and Commercial

Credit points: 3
Year: 2019
Student Contribution Band: Band 3
Administered by: College of Business, Law & Governance

This subject takes a contemporary view of gastronomy into which is added a multi-notion of hospitality. Essentially, the act of hospitality and term gastronomy are considered as more than simply the provision and consumption of food and associated products. Hospitality and gastronomy provides an opportunity for an holistic understanding of the area from social, private and commercial domains. Extending hospitality and gastronomy beyond traditional venues, renders most people both purveyors and consumers. Implications of these developments upon issues like interpersonal reciprocity, gender relations and private and public space are key if the terms hospitality and gastronomy are to be fully understood in contemporary society.

Learning Outcomes

  • understand the anthropology of hospitality and philosophy of hospitableness;
  • identify the social history and gender issues surrounding hospitality trades;
  • apply extended knowledge and holistic understanding to meanings of hospitality in the media and across a range of traditional and non-traditional areas.
