Organizers: Rebecca Flynn, University of South Dakota, firstname.lastname@example.org and Salvatore Musumeci, University of Sioux Falls, email@example.com.
Description: This panel will thematically explore the social and cultural implications of how sacred and profane acts of consumption depicted in Boccaccio's Decameron and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales define relationships between people and the spaces they inhabit.
