Culinary Mediations: Ingesting Culture and Making Bodies in Contemporary China
Call for Papers Deadline:
This collection aims to theorize the mediations that food actualizes in the making of culturally specific bodies. Contributors explore various sites where the cultivation, preparation, and ingestion of food elaborate social relations in China, tracking if you will the culinary imaginary. These explorations allow us to critically speculate on how the culinary imaginary articulates global and local processes through the cultivation of individual bodies. In turn, these critical speculations recast the question, how are culturally specific bodies produced and maintained in an era of globalization?
