Body and Society

This is a course that surveys the enormous intellectual growth of studies of the human body in sociology, anthropology and other social science disciplines. It will focus on the diverse social meanings of the body situated within a range of social contexts. Sociocultural notions of the body are examined through analyses of corporeal experiences in relation to religion, the senses, health, spectacles, commodification, technology, and other substantive dimensions.
