MY TOPIC IS ON: NOODLES
For this project, you will research a food that is common to many cultures OR a cultural
celebration featuring symbolic foods. Topics will be chosen from the approved list below.
Approval is required for alternate topics. You will present a history of the food or cultural
celebration from an anthropological/historical point of view. For a food topic, you will
describe traditional uses in the cultures where it is used, including symbolic uses of the
food, historical importance, and any restrictions on the use of the food. For a celebration,
you will include discussion of associated symbolic food(s) and their meaning in the
context of the celebration, and typical preparations. You will also discuss changing uses
of the food or celebration in the modern world due to immigration and globalization.
The paper will be a minimum of 4 pages in length, double-spaced, and must include a list
of at least 4 references in APA format. Please follow other writing guidelines as specified
in the syllabus. The 4 counted references should be from scholarly sources such as
textbooks, library sources, appropriate periodicals (most popular magazines do not
qualify, but I?d allow some depending on the quality and your topic), and other sources
(websites must be scholarly); if in doubt, ask. In-paper citations should follow the same
approved format (APA). All references, whether scholarly or not, must be cited in a list
and within the body of the paper. Assignment meets GELO 1.

the information you have found in researching the topic. ?Do not include personal
opinions or preferences (?write in 3?rd? person only?).
