課程概述

NOTE: This class is popular and fills up within minutes! If you cannot register online, then you must wait until week 3 of the semester, fill out a form, and get my signature. There is nothing you can do until week 3, so don't email me.

The class uses NTU COOL, so go there.

This English language lecture series covers the science and sociology of insects as a food. Increasing media, investment, and public policy attention has been given over the years to the role insects may play in the future of food. Can eating insects really save the world from famine and environmental destruction? Are there health costs or benefits to adding insects to the diet? Will all people accept insects as food? Should we be promoting edible insects at all, and if so, how best do we do it? What species will we eat and how shall we raise them? This class examines all aspects of the edible insects question, with students taught a broad but thorough overview of the field and asked to consider questions in class about what role they think insects will play in their own food futures, and why they think this way.
Actual consumption of insects is not a required part of the class.
Articles will be made available on the class website, as a supplement to what is taught in class. This class will be open to the NTU, NTUST, and NTNU Triangle Alliance and is open to exchange students. 

課程目標
The goal of the class is to have students fully familiar with all aspects of edible insects and will know what directions the field is headed, such that they could go into careers in research / business / cultivation / policy / etc. on the subject should they choose to.
There will be weekly writing assignments due before the next class, and a final project. 
課程要求
No previous knowledge is required for this class.
