Insects are uninvited guests at our tables hovering nearby, crawling on our food or already inside our guts. While we humans come together to talk and eat, insects are also with us in other ways: thoughts buzz, skin crawls; we have butterflies in our stomachs and ants in our pants. These scenes are of interest, both because of the relations that are struck up between insect and human worlds and because of the way insects imaginatively figure many of the affects and instincts mobilized when we gather about the table.
