STS.062J Drugs, Politics, and Culture (MIT) STS.062J Drugs, Politics, and Culture (MIT)

Description

This class examines the relationship between a number of mind-altering substances and cultural processes. We look at the relationship between drugs and such phenomena as poverty, religion, technology, inter-generational conflict, colonialism, and global capitalism. We read about the physiological and psychological effects of these substances -- ranging from alcohol to LSD, cocaine and ecstasy -- and ask why different societies prohibit and sanction different drugs. We examine the use of mind-altering substances in a number of "traditional" societies, and follow the development of a global trade in such substances as sugar, coffee, tea, nicotine, cocaine, and marijuana concurrent with the evolution of global capitalism. We look at the use of LSD as a mind-control substance by the CIA and This class examines the relationship between a number of mind-altering substances and cultural processes.

21W.730-4 Writing on Contemporary Issues: Food for Thought: Writing and Reading about the Cultures of Food (MIT) 21W.730-4 Writing on Contemporary Issues: Food for Thought: Writing and Reading about the Cultures of Food (MIT)

Description

"What people do with food is an act that reveals how they construe the world." - Marcella Hazan, The Classic Italian Cookbook If you are what you eat, what are you? Food is at once the stuff of life and a potent symbol; it binds us to the earth, to our families, and to our cultures. In this class, we explore many of the fascinating issues that surround food as both material fact and personal and cultural symbol. We read essays by Toni Morrison, Michael Pollan, Wendell Berry, and others on such topics as family meals, eating as an "agricultural act" (Berry), slow food, and food's ability to awaken us to "our own powers of enjoyment" (M. F. K. Fisher). We will also read Pollan's most recent book, In Defense of Food, and discuss the issues it raises as well as "What people do with food is an act that reveals how they construe the world." - Marcella Hazan, The Classic Italian Cookbook If you are what you eat, what are you?

Elizabeth Dawson, dressmaker, arrested for pawning customers' skirts

Description

Name: Elizabeth Dawson Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 20 June 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-45-Elizabeth Dawson The Shields Daily News for 21 June 1907 reports: ?A DRESSMAKER?S DOWNFALL. At the North Shields Police Court today Elizabeth Dawson (52), described as a widow, of Sidney Street, was charged with being the bailee of two skirts, the property of Mrs Harrison of Bamborough Terrace and Mrs Dickinson of Whitley, and did convert them to her own use. It was explained in evidence that Mrs Harrison and Mrs Dickinson gave the accused, who is a dressmaker, the two skirts to alter. Instead of doing this, she pledged them at Messrs Findlay Mitchell and Co.?s pawnshop in Church Street. She told the assistant at that place of business that the skirts were her own property, and she being an old customer, he believed her statement and took them in, advancing 2s 6d upon each. Accused said that she was forced to do as she had because her landlady was pressing her for payment. The Bench gave her another chance, just binding her over to be of good behaviour for six months in the sum of 1. They thought drink had been the cause of her downfall and advised her to sign the pledge. She undertook to do so.? Sadly this wasn?t to be her last brush with the law. The Shields Daily News for 2 November 1907 reports: ?Elizabeth Dawson (52), widow, 11 Sidney Street, drunk and incapable in Church Way; 5s and costs.?
