February 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Globalization from Below: Towards an Analytics of Fun and a New Kind of Collaborative Critique
February 25, 2020 from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. 
Location: Jackman Humanities Building, Room 100, 170 St. George Street
Hosted by the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies and co-sponsored by the Culinaria Institute, this exciting guest lecture from NYU Professor Krishnendu Ray explores the pleasure of urban street food and the opening it provides into the politics and poetics of vernacular taste, and how it disrupts presumptions of good taste with cultural domination. This presentation asks: What are the best ways to register the bottom-up, sensuous materiality and sociability in theory, without falling into the gourmand’s trap of pure apolitical pleasure?
