British Modernism & Taste: Bringing the World Inside

Literally, taste is connected with gustatory pleasure. Figuratively it has its place in the philosophy of aesthetics, and in discourses of social manners and class. Exploring British modernism’s preoccupation with taste this panel asks how might a wider critical approach to taste—attention to literal and figurative—inform our understanding of British modernism? Please send 300-500 word abstracts and a brief bio to Michael D. Becker, mdbecker@my.uri.edu with ‘NeMLA 2013’ as the subject.
