About this book

This book examines the representation of hunger across various media, including canonical literary texts, films, political tracts, social surveys, and nutritional publications. Each essay is invested in the question of how hunger is related to the constitution of modern human collectives, whether these are nationally bound, transnationally itinerant, imperially ordered, or geographically displaced.
