HS347
The Body
0.5 Credit

This course works to understand the body’s social and cultural role. Departing from a physiological, or biomedical, explanation of the body, this course understands bodies as residing at the intersection between the “private” (individual) and “public” (social). Course material will draw from a number of perspectives, including those from sociology, anthropology, geography, philosophy, theatre and performance studies, in order to critically explore dynamics of the body and embodiment.
