An Example ‘Difference, Distance and Disgust: Deciphering a Strong Sensation’ Dr Jason L. Mast IAS Global Research Fellow Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies Disgust-sites are characterized as having the power to command attention and caution, as being durable over time, and as universal in that every human culture has some form of disgust trigger and response. Disgust-sites also work in a pre-cognitive way, triggering revulsion before people know precisely what they are reacting to. In this project I use foodbased case studies to examine two social processes: a) how disgust-sites may be destabilized, or how disgusting things, like bugs, may be un-disgustified, and b) how disgust-sites, like tainted meat, may be deployed, or used to pollute and contaminate other, formerly neutral sites.
