The course will consider phenomenological and semiotic theories of the body across a range of topics, including the senses, emotion, body movement, dress, body modification, body image, fat/body size, pain, pleasure, sexuality, gender, reproduction, social power, health illness, disability, aging, and death. Additionally, the course will present sensory ethnographic methods as tools for conducting research on lived bodily experience.
