In this paper Gillette uses an incident from her anthropological field research in a Muslim neighborhood in China to think about questions of scale and method for studying food, the body, and Islam. She argues that food, the body, and Islam are multi-scalar phenomena, and that this has important implications for the methods we can use to study them as historians and anthropologists. Her analysis contributes to ongoing discussions about the study of “the sensorium,” or sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch, across cultural and historical difference.
