What.... is it March already? The time is ticking down quickly this semester and I have been prepping for my final conference of the term set to take place next week at the University of Toronto Mississauga at an event titled "Gastronomy, Culture, and the Arts: A Scholarly Exchange of Epic Portions." I will be co-presenting a paper with Dr. Shelley Boyd on the topic of Canadian writer and artist Douglas Coupland and his interest in literary and visual art explorations of modern forms of Canadian-ness and identity through evocative and powerful food narratives. This paper will come on the heels of our own symposium on Canadian Culinary Imaginations that we successfully co-organized and hosted a few weeks ago, so we are well primed and ready to carry on the conversations we have been engaged with on this topic for some time now. Interestingly, Coupland is at the New York Armory Show this week and has caused some buzz with both the debut of his de-recognition software and related art projects together with a provocative essay titled "What is the future of art?" that I have included in my list of links this week. Enjoy this and the other media shares below-- have a great week!
