Participants might consider, for example, the relationship between literal and figurative digestion in the context of theories about the nexus of body and language more generally; the relationship between digestion and cognition or emotion; the ideological underpinnings of discourses of specific digestive organs or aspects of digestion like assimilation, excretion, indigestion, or vomiting; or the significance of specific kinds of digestion, like anthropophagy, to identity. Papers might also explore medical texts by writers like Sanctorius, Paracelsus, or Van Helmont.

[UPDATE] Untying the Mother Tongue. On Language, Affect, and the Unconscious Deadline ext. October, 15

Federico Dal Bo, Antonio Castore / ICI Berlin

The term we still use to designate someone's attachment to a particular language, her potentially flawless competence, or the very "place" for her thoughts to emerge in coherent form, is "mother tongue". We take it to be a natural condition of language acquisition, equally valid for every individual speaker, and thus forget that it is a mere metaphorical reference to the "first" language, spoken by what is referred to, with an even more misleading metaphor, a "native" speaker.

Throughout history, the use and connotations of the expression "mother tongue" have undergone several changes. In the Middle Ages and Early Modern period, the Latin "lingua materna" referred to the vernaculars in opposition to the learned Latin.
