Dr. Dicks had a course in Cambridge this summer focusing on food and culture. The opportunity was opened up to Oklahoma State University students to learn about different cultures, food, - importantly rational behind food choices why some are eaten in one part of the world and not in others. Students also had opportunities to travel to other parts of Europe for a weekend to study the culture as well as the food systems. Visiting lectures from the nutritional department as well as the English department from Oklahoma State University were invited to lecture on nutritional values as well as word choices in association with food. Literatures for this course are as follows: Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, Cannibals and Kings by Marvin Harris, Stolen Harvest by Vandana Shiva.
