We invite you to read Volume 9 of the journal, which contains articles based on papers presented at the conference "Literary Map of Flavours: from Taste Culture to the Taste Industry" (2020). You can read it here.

The thematic issue on taste is significant in that it brings together in one place papers devoted to various aspects of taste, mapping cultural and literary tastes, highlighting new theoretical and practical guidelines for the study of this topic, and marking the points of contact between the “continents” of different but interconnected disciplines.

The papers present, for the sake of convenience, interpretations offered by Lithuanian and European researchers, ranging from the importance of historical products for our identity to the analysis of different meals in literary texts, to taste as a value criterion. Taste has been chosen as a semantic code that helps delving deeper into literary history and cultural studies, gastropoetics, semiotics of the senses, and aesthetics.
