Professor Todd Kennedy's class next semester at Nicholls State University will examine Bourdain's writings, TV shows and the films that influenced him. “What he did is so unique,” says Kennedy. “We talk about connections between literature and film and art and politics and history, but we’re always trained to talk about them separately. He goes all in and puts all those things, along with food, in conversation to try to understand the culture he’s looking at. And that speaks to people.” The university will also make an accelerated version of the course available online.
