From the Back Cover:

The authors in A Companion to the Anthropology of the Body and Embodiment utilize studies of bodily experience to launch powerful refutations of abstract, universalizing models and ideologies, and provide new far-reaching analyses of gender, racial, and sexual difference and of bodies embedded in a range of political-economic contexts, including colonialism, late capitalism, neoliberalism, and post-socialism.

Exploring body politics, embodiment, the senses, affect, and emotion, Mascia-Lees brings together a key group of scholars to examine historical and contemporary approaches to, and conceptualizations of, the body.

The authors situate their examination of embodiment in lived worlds, scientific labs, medical clinics, and virtual worlds. They explore topics such as biopower, the body beautiful, transgenderism, genomics, masculinities, modification, pain, the senses, racialization, and virtuality. A Companion to the Anthropology of the Body and Embodiment also offers new theoretical frameworks and conceptual categories which will set the parameters for future research on bodies and embodiments.
