Robert Appelbaum is currently completing a book, Aguecheek's Beef, Belch's Hiccup, and Other Gastronomic Interjections: Literature, Culture, and Food Among the Early Moderns, which is to be published by University of Chicago Press. This book covers literature in Italian and French as well as English, and includes studies of medical texts, cookbooks, prose fiction, poems, and plays, all of which develop a discourse of food in the period. He is also beginning a study of literary representations of terrorism, from the early moderns to the post-moderns. An upcoming conference on the Gunpowder Plot, sponsored by the English department at Lancaster, will help him inaugurate what he hopes will be a long term and collaborative project on understanding the symbolic and historical dimensions of terror.

To this end he has recently written articles on Hannibal Lecter and will continue to use Thomas Harris's texts as a lens to focus discussions of masculinity in fiction and film. The second project involves a comparative consideration of time, space and modernity in terms of Bakhtin's notion of the 'chronotope', in a range of representations of city spaces (London, New York, Paris, Istanbul, Tokyo) and generic spaces (the fortress, the jail, the casino, the shopping mall).
