Foodscapes of the anthropocene: Literary perspectives from Asia

Hannes Bergthaller*, You Ting Chen


研究成果: 報告類型專書


One of the most important drivers of the Anthropocene was a radical shift in what and how people eat. Industrial agriculture and meat production, new ways of processing, packaging, and distributing food, and the globalization of culinary habits not only upended traditional lifeways around the world but also continue to play a key role in climate change, biodiversity loss, and various other processes that are transforming the Earth system -now rendering food production increasingly precarious. Nowhere have these changes been more dramatic or consequential than in Asia. The essays in this volume examine how literary works from the Asian continent have responded to the profound changes in the region's foodscapes. They cover poetry, prose fiction, and literary non-fiction from China, India, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, and Taiwan.
