AES: Does Chocolate Have a "Dark Side?": Start Here

Science and Culture of Chocolate. Information and research help for Dr. Romi Burk's Advanced Entry Seminar.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3a/Naturalis_Biodiversity_Center_-_L.0939563_-_Bernecker%2C_A._-_Theobroma_cacao_-_Artwork.jpegNearly everyone loves some kind of chocolate but no one thinks enough about where chocolate comes from or how it gets to store shelves.  Chocolate’s versatility reaches back centuries, yet emerges routinely in our social lives, our environmental concerns, our health applications, and our aesthetic experiences. 

This seminar uses chocolate as a context to make connections between the sciences, social sciences, humanities and the fine arts. This seminar challenges assumptions of students about what “chocolate” really means.  Students will critically evaluate sources of chocolate and discuss texts that shed light on past applications and controversies surrounding this delightful resource. ‚Äč
