### altering the case of a list (e.g. /begin{itemize}/MakeUppercase)

I'd like to uppercase an itemized list. A first attempt was like this:
\uppercase{%
\begin{itemize}
\item foo
\item bar
\item baz
\end{itemize}
}

The compiler rejects the code because it tries to convert the commands into uppercase. So then I tried to adapt this working example from "description" to "itemize": https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/41525/labels-of-list-items-capitalized-bold-style as follows:
\documentclass[paper=letter,DIV=13]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{enumitem} % redefine itemize to control font choice

\begin{itemize}[font=\scshape\MakeUppercase]
\item foo
\item bar
\item baz
\end{itemize}

Notice that I even also threw in an scshape for good measure. Compiler accepts the code depite the slashes in the font arg being backwards -- but it has no effect. If the slashes are made proper, then the commands get printed literally.
