Scholar's Hub @ Home - Eating as an Art of Connection
Dr. David B. Goldstein, Associate Professor, Department of English, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies

We hear a great deal about how to select individual foods in order to keep ourselves, our families and our planet healthy. We hear much less about the equally important role that eating plays in creating community and pleasure. In discussing scenes of food-sharing in literature, religion, and philosophy, this talk offers a different way of thinking about our relationship to food—not as a thing but as an act and art of connection, not as a what but as a how and why.

David B. Goldstein serves as Associate Professor of English and coordinator of the Creative Writing Program at York University. His first monograph, Eating and Ethics in Shakespeare’s England, shared the Shakespeare’s Globe Book Award. A former restaurant critic and food magazine editor, he has also published three co-edited essay collections on subjects involving Shakespeare, food, and hospitality, as well as two books of poetry.
