Consuming the wor(l)d

A six course meal on gluttony

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Of all sinning bodies the gluttonous body is the most public. Personal narrative, mediated body image, and the imperialist politics of economic virtue are considered in turn to derive a hermeneutics of abundance to oppose the modernist regime of scarcity, which I tie to a gnostic metaphysics.
