This roundtable explores the rhetoric of disgust—along with its conceptual cousins (spleen, nausea, informe, abjection, etc.)—as generative forces for 20th- and 21st-century French/Francophone thought. Speakers will examine dégoût as a complex, historically situated feeling that connects and binds even as it repels, drawing attention to margins, borders, and remainders.
