Digestive Modernisms

A free series of online talks about modernism and digestion within modernist literature, art, culture and philosophy.

Digestive Modernisms is an informal interdisciplinary network based in Edinburgh, bringing together researchers, artists, and writers interested in the gastronomics of modern literature and life.

We are interested in looking at food, diet, and gut health in modernist literature, art, culture and philosophy, taking an approach that is informed by the medical humanities, food studies, animal studies, the environmental humanities, and post-humanism, among other critical contexts.
