Undergraduate and Graduate Seminar
This seminar examines the ways in which the body is discursively constituted, and itself serves as the substratum for social life. Key questions include: How are distinctions made between "normal" and "pathological" bodies, and between the "psychic" and "somatic" realms? How do historical forces shape bodily experience? How do bodies that are racialized, gendered, and classed offer resistance to social categorization?
