ANT 4280 - Anthropology of the Body (3)

When Offered: Spring
Social scientists have often relied on the naturalized, universal understanding of the human body adopted from the biomedical sciences. This course challenges these assumptions by examining the multiple bodies and diverse forms of subjectivity found in the anthropological literature and other fields of scholarship. Our explorations of lived bodies will, in turn, contribute to more sophisticated understandings of human social and cultural forms.
