Conference Papers

Eating Out: Food And Sex, Cannibalism And Prostitution: An Analysis Of Sex And Eating As Parallel Methods Of Consumption In Film, Rose M. Jimenez

Graduate Student Publications and Research

This piece analyzes aspects of the parallel framing of sexuality and food throughout 20th and 21st century film.

Films span over 100 years of cinema, from mainstream blockbuster films to underground international film.
