David Szanto is a researcher, artist, and teacher, taking an experimental approach to gastronomy through design, ecology, and performance. His aim is to better understand the systemic, intra-active relationships between humans, food, and the processes that frame what is at once a mundane act as well as a magnificently complicated daily performance. Ultimately, he would like you to stop treating your food as an object, please.
David previously taught at Concordia University, the University of Gastronomic Sciences, and l’Université du Québec à Montréal, and served as Vice President of the Canadian Association for Food Studies for four years. He is currently an Associate Editor of the peer-reviewed journal, Canadian Food Studies/La Revue canadienne des études sur l’alimentation.
In March 2015, he completed his PhD with a dissertation entitled Performing Gastronomy: An Ecosophic Engagement with the Liveliness of Food.
