Author/Artist Bio

DELORES B. PHILLIPS is assistant professor of postcolonial literature and theory at ODU and co-directs the Postcolonial Research Group at ODU. Her research interests include images of eating and excreting in Anglophone literature, focusing on cultures of diaspora and differences as depicted in culinary autobiographies and postcolonial novels.


Phillips presented on Wednesday, October 8th, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. "Creative Eats" - This presentation examines how writers and artists use the visual arts and cookbook writing to upset our conventional notions of food culture. It examines that which skirts the margins of the edible, examining artistic installations that profile rot and draw attention to food waste, work done with miniaturization and food, death row supper photo spreads, and cookbooks that use the marginally edible, and subculture food blogs.
