Dear Africana/ Black Studies community,

I'm pleased to announce the following Black Studies course for Fall  
	Blks288: Food, Nutrition, and Health in Africa, which will be taught  
by Francis Alemawor, of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and  
Technology in Kumasi, Ghana, in Fall 2011. The course will meet M/W  
1-2:15 in Newton 205. The course is now listed (under Black Studies)  
on the master schedule page and Knightweb and available for  
registration. The description is below.
Blks288: Food, Nutrition, and Health in Africa (3 credits)

                   This course will generally examine the status,  
influencing factors and challenges of food system and food security in  
Africa, and their interaction with nutrition and health status of  
Africans; and also consider the linkage between agriculture and  
nutrition and health in the social and economic development of the  
African continent. The course is targeted at a broad audience and does  
not necessarily require specific technical knowledge to make use of  
the insights.

Required text: D. D. Watson II (Ed) (2010). The African Food System  
and Its Interactions with Human Health and Nutrition. First Edition,  
Cornell University Press Ithaca, NY

Please share this information with interested students. Students can
