Abstracts of papers, individual proposals, and/or panel proposals dealing with the intersection of the body and culture are now being accepted. The Body and Culture Area encourages interdisciplinary dialogue over the body as text, both literal and discursive, and how the body’s production of meaning is socially, culturally, historically, and politically located. Papers may address the meanings culture writes onto bodies, the origin of those meanings, and the impact those meanings have on bodies so inscribed.

We welcome topics of any nature dealing with the body: gendered and hyper-gendered bodies, absent and present bodies, bodies that conform, bodies that resist, bodies in media/bodies as media, bodies as activism, bodies in conflict, live bodies, mediatized bodies, bodies on stage, bodies in movement and stillness.

Papers should address popular culture explicitly, and methodologies across disciplines, cultural contexts, and historical periods are welcome. Papers from scholars and practitioners are welcome, and full panels are especially encouraged to apply.
