New course coming Spring 2014:

Coffee, Cloves and Chocolate:
Plant Explorers and Thieves

Did you know that pepper was a major player in Europe’s “discovery” of the Americas? Or that coffee is the world’s most widely used psychotropic drug? Learn more about these and other amazing stories as we examine a botanical treasure-trove of important culinary, medicinal, industrial, and ornamental crops over time.

Discover the critical roles plants have played throughout history—from saving lives, to enslaving multitudes, to pitting nation against nation.
