experienced their own and others bodies as sources of pleasure;
historical and theoretical links between consuming and identifying with
particular objects, people, and activities; also, investigations of the
notions of "good" versus "bad" taste; the geo-politics of taste; the
metro-politics of taste; identity and taste; sexuality and taste; and
