National Conference: Doing the Body in the 21st Century

March 31, 2016 - 9:00am - April 2, 2016 - 7:00pm

Hosted by GSWS. See our website for cosponsors.

What does it mean to study the body today?

Bodies can be collective, material, medicalized, biological, sexual, queer, trans, normative, political, racial, transnational, ecological, historical, useful, global, affective, gendered, disabled, surveilled, controlled, subjected, transformed, enhanced, engineered, empowered, organized, discursive, aesthetic, translated, theorized, aging, acting, voting, managed, merging, migrating, moving, constructing, creating, performing.

How are scholars thinking about bodies? Because the study of the body and of bodies has changed dramatically in the last decade, we propose to gather a group of diverse scholars to talk across traditional disciplines, and to take stock of where these studies are and where they are heading.

Join the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program at the University of Pittsburgh as we host a transdisciplinary, international conference March 31 - April 2, 2016: Doing the Body in the 21st Century.
