Why should I read what you have written?

Why should anyone read what you have written? This should be question No. 1 for anyone writing anything.

As students, we learn to write assignments. The teacher who hands us a topic has to read what we write. But once we leave school and start writing for…

American Moral Objectification of Food

That's the working title anyway.



I was reading Sex and Development by Adams Vincaene et al and I just finished the section on Greece. About 10 minutes after reading the conclusion it dawned on me that we have a similar sort of situation here in America with food. That an ethics of well being is being used to morally objectify food and there is this resistance to that. I've heard it myself, "You have to die from something." This is, of course, despite the fact that this something…

The aim is to develop the world's largest public collection of this material and a permanent record of a disappearing world through a medium which is itself becoming rather outdated by modern media!
