Guest editors: Jean-Jacques BOUTAUD (CIMEOS, 3S, EA4177, University of Bourgogne, France) and Stéphane DUFOUR (CIMEOS, 3S, EA4177, University of Bourgogne, France)

Between the nutrient and food, the food and the object of taste, are involved in a trajectory of meaning.

A trajectory both discrete and complex, a flow of flavor in value, a range of words in moments marked by emotions.

Call for Book Chapters: Sustainability and the City: Urban Poetics and Politics. April 1, 2015.

Lauren Curtright/Georgia Perimeter College

Conventional deployments of the term "sustainability" emphasize "avoiding the long-term depletion of natural resources," as the Oxford English Dictionary defines this word. However, the emergent idea of "comprehensive sustainability" considers the so-called natural environment and human politics in equal measure and means not only reconciling preservation and development but also achieving social justice and equality. Does this altered definition of sustainability mark or require a profound shift in perceptions of cities? Or might we trace concepts of sustainability in past ideas about cities?
