Hungry Hungry Humanities: Eating is Understanding
Monday, March 7, 2016 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm
DePaul Student Center, 120 2250 N. Sheffield Ave., Chicago, IL 60614
Scholars throughout history have dismissed food and drink as topics that are, at best, unworthy of sustained attention, and at worst, distractions from clear thinking and even from the well-being of the mind. In a special multi-sensory, interactive foodie event, philosopher Robert Valgenti (Lebanon Valley College) will explore phenomena such as deliciousness, disgust, and authenticity in order to ask: Can food uncover something profound about humans and the ways that they understand their world? Can the aroma of fresh ideas rouse thinking from its gastronomic slumber?
The first 100 attendees will receive a bento box packed with food: a mini three-course meal that will be used throughout the presentation as audience members are asked to eat together and understand together.
Discounted parking rate available. See Humanities Center staff at event for details.
