One of only a handful of substances produced in nature expressly as food, milk is fundamental for infant mammalian nutrition, but is also foundational in human myth and religion. Cabinet issue 62, with a special section on “Milk,” includes Renata Salecl on the psychoanalytical implications of the recent death of a child solely breastfed for the first five years of his life; Jeff Dolven on milk and luminosity; Esther Leslie and Melanie Jackson on the ways in which milk is transformed from primary material to metaphorical excess; and Melanie Tyson on the colonial history of condensed milk.
