Dal cane-cibo al dog restaurant

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Gastronomic discourse often calls into question issues surroundinganimality, but it’s not only the imposition of Paleo or vegetariandiets encouraging or banning the consumption of meat which are becomingincreasingly popular subjects. New trends in animal foods suchas the appearance and growth of dog restaurants or the increase inattention being given to the nutritional quality of dry dog food are becomingimportant areas of discussion too, and while some traditionalistswill always view the dog as a beast, contrasting progressive ideas arenow being aired in the media. In this article we will talk about foodphilosophies and restaurants (both human and animal) to showhowtheycommunicate, through their discursive staging and spatial and actorialaspectualisation, different conceptions of animality.
