Worst Colleges in America
Worst colleges in America
The best part: examples of classes you could take at these fine institutions. At Cornell: Post-National Gastroidentities. "We will attempt to answer the question of how food, cuisine, and gastronomy play an important part both in the strategies to instrument normalcy through the imagination of the modern Nation-State, and the ways in which discourses affirming nation, race, ethnicity, hospitality, and the universality of humanity interact with each other fragmenting the national gastronomic field and undermining the unpolluted self-understanding of the modern Nation-State."
Man, you just can't make that stuff up.
