Description

Messy Bodies (I and II) will follow this broad theme and offer a forum for discussion that engages with premodern bodies as physical and symbolic entities that both stand for and disrupt prescriptive discourses on bodily and social functions, including sexuality, and political participation. It is our contention that, while the body appears as a historical source in different fields, an interdisciplinary approach to the body highlights its potential to both problematize and enrich our understanding of traditional topics.
