Description

This paper examines a number of experimental moments when things were eaten and things ate - in multiple senses. Together, they probe a key question about gastronomic ontologies: when it comes to arranging food knowldege, what ordering systems make sense? It is a question that may seem inane, imaginative, and/or irrelevant, depending on one's motives and perspectives. Unpacking this question may help to reconfigure some of the other questions address in this area of study.
