In this Book
In his novel approach to the study of the Kellogg enterprise, Bauch asks his readers to think geographically about the process of digesting food. Beginning with the stomach, the chapters move outward from the Sanitarium through the landscapes and technologies that materialized Kellogg’s particular version of digestion. Far from a set of organs confined to the epidermal bounds of the body, the digestive system existed in other places. From food processing machines, to urban sewerage, to agricultural fields, A Geography of Digestion paints a grounded portrait for one of the most basic human processes of survival – the incorporation of food into our bodies – leading us to question where exactly our bodies are located.
