A lot has been said about bodies, yet the body still remains one of the most
contested concepts in a wide range of fields, such as art, anthropology,
history, literature, medicine, philosophy, religion, as well as the study of
gender and sexuality. Thinking about bodies has occasioned ongoing
encounters, clashes, and border-crossings between these disciplines.
The Program in Comparative Literature at the University of South Carolina
invites submissions to an interdisciplinary conference entitled _Bodies,_ to
be held in Columbia, SC, February 25-27, 2010. We welcome papers and panels
that examine bodies from any angle, and we especially encourage
cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approaches. Suggested topics include,
but are not limited to:
the ghostly body
the anorexic body
the medical body
bodies and biotechnology
the self-destructive body
the religious body
the Oriental body
racialized bodies
emotional bodies
animal bodies
cross-dressed bodies
transgendered bodies
invisible bodies
viewed bodies
philosophies of corporeality
corpses
the _undead_ body
robots & cyborgs
the disabled body
