Discussion of Parallax 66 journal issue on food with Lindsay Kelley, guest editor.

The Jackman Humanities Institute Program for the Arts on Food is pleased to present:

Bon Appétit!

A Discussion of parallax 66 with Guest Editors Lindsay Kelley and Lynn Turner

In this issue of parallax 66 guest editors Lindsay Kelley and Lynn Turner (via Skype) join with Kate MccGwire’s heavy feathered eruption in re-describing the limits of food and eating, and confronting boundaries between food and filth, self and other. At the time of writing escalating food costs – especially as linked to climate change – provoke daily crises, demonstrating the urgency of a wholesale rethinking of the matter of what, how and who we eat. The essays in 'bon appétit' engage different strategies and target different aspects of this erstwhile basic need. Our kitchen stocks familiar and unfamiliar ingredients: ‘disembodied livestock’, cookies and candy, bioluminescent rabbits, insects, bovine udders, jellyfish, jam, peas, the gut bacteria that make digestion possible. These ingredients provoke investigations of the overlapping politics, ethics and poetics of what we – who we? – do when we eat.

Founded in 1995, parallax 66 has established an international reputation for bringing together outstanding new work in cultural studies, critical theory and philosophy. parallax publishes themed issues that aim to provoke exploratory, interdisciplinary thinking and response. Each issue of parallax 66 provides a forum for a wide spectrum of perspectives on a topical question or concern. parallax 66 will be of interest to those working in cultural studies, critical theory, cultural history, philosophy, gender studies, queer theory, post-colonial theory, English and comparative literature, aesthetics, art history and visual cultures.

This event is free and open to the public.  Registration is not required.
