Anthony Revelle (PhD, University of Michigan) teaches courses on Medieval literature, creative writing, and food cultures in France across time periods and communities. His research focuses on flesh, embodiment, eating as a social practice, and the production of the Other in commensal contexts. He has published articles on the consumption of flesh and on crossing boundaries between genders and among humans and animals in Old French narratives. His current research project interrogates what makes the human and the nonhuman in medieval literature, with a focus on corporeality, animality, and the materiality of social hierarchies.
