May 19 2021

This HARI-funded online symposium provides an opportunity to explore intersecting perspectives on constructs of the inedible, indigestible and unpalatable across historical periods and contemporary cultures, across the School of Humanities and across our College. We want to explore the value judgements, power relations and cultural and economic imperatives that fuel perceptions of what is edible or inedible, palatable or unpalatable, raising questions of sustainability, integration, conflict and competition. 

This symposium is open to all students and staff. It will feature a variety of types of contribution, including short papers, flash presentations, roundtables and a keynote paper by Professor Klaus Dodds
