Body Politics : History of the body


Body Politics – Zeitschrift für Körpergeschichte

Sujet : In the past twenty years, the history of the body has become an increasingly visible field of scholarly inquiry and has experienced a remarkable expansion. This journal is an attempt to represent and contribute to the field’s development in all its various facets. The focus of the journal is the body as a multi-dimensional object of research and as the result of historical transformations: as an effect of social practices, an object of the imagination and of representation, in its discursivity, materiality, and productivity. The body was and is a medium of subjectification as well as the locus of efforts at social hierarchization and, not least, of political conflicts. It is in this comprehensive sense that the title of the journal must be understood : Body Politics.
