Body Politics: Gender, Sexuality and Embodiment



Body Politics: Gender, Sexuality and Embodiment focuses on sexuality and embodiment, and the specific ways in which human bodies are inhabited and represented, historically and culturally. Feminist and queer theories inform this analysis. The political nature of the intimate processes of identity formation, and the effects of technologies on our notions of gender appropriateness and physical normalcy are explored in this field.
