I will be giving a presentation on Alcohol and Identity in Mo Yan’s The Republic of Wine at the workshop: Commensality and Social Organisation at the University of Copenhagen 6.10.2011 – 9.10.2011.
“Commensality, the social context of sharing consumption of food, drink and sometimes drugs, is of great importance for societies on all levels. Food, globalisation and identity play an important role in the social make-up of society.”
– Organised by ToRS (Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies), University of Copenhagen.
