Join us for a virtual book launch of Meat! A Transnational Analysis on Friday, April 9 at 1:00 PM EASTERN TIME (12PM Central/10AM Pacific)

What is meat? Is it simply food to consume, or a metaphor for our own bodies? Can “bloody” vegan burgers, petri dish beef, live animals, or human milk be categorized as meat? In pursuing these questions, the contributors to Meat! (recently published by Duke University Press) trace the shifting boundaries of the meanings of meat across time, geography, and cultures. 

This virtual celebration will be moderated by editors Sushmita Chatterjee and Banu Subramanian, with comments (live & pre-recorded) from contributors: Neel Ahuja, Irina Aristarkhova, Sushmita Chatterjee, Mel Y. Chen, Kim Q. Hall, Jennifer A. Hamilton, Anita Mannur, Elspeth Probyn, Parama Roy, Banu Subramaniam, Angela Willey, and Psyche Williams-Forson.
