[REPOST] Edited Collection on the Aesthetics and Politics of Hunger (15 June, 2014)

full name / name of organization: 
Manisha Basu and Anastasia Ulanowicz

Within the past 50 years, practitioners of cultural studies and the humanities more generally have addressed the question of hunger in terms of the immediate, individual body. For example, scholars such as Susan Bordo have considered the ways in which individual practices of self-imposed hunger (for example, anorexia and bulimia) have played a significant role in the maintenance of Western, patriarchal standards of beauty and heteronormative relations. Although this present study acknowledges the contributions made by earlier interventions such as Bordo's, it ultimately seeks to address the question of hunger within a wider, historical-materialist framework.

The concept of "world literature" which was first suggested by Goethe while he was talking with his friend and student Johann Peter Eckermann on the 31th of January, 1827, started to be discussed specially after mid-20th century. Although nobody can demarcates, it became a field of study by the help of works by David Damrosch, Pascale Casanova and Franco Moretti.

As humans, we are continually examining how to position ourselves spatially, aesthetically, emotionally, intellectually, and practically in our environments. Today, we face these tasks with new urgency as the devastating impact of global climate change stimulates renewed scholarly focus on the environment. From Ecocriticism to Posthumanism to Deep Ecology studies, the humanities are engaged in a multi-disciplinary effort to understand how humans interact with natural and built environments.
