Cultures of the Body


Cultures of the Body

Led by Dr Lynne Hibberd

The Cultures of the body strand welcomes interdisciplinary investigations into historical and contemporary attitudes to, and ideas and cultural perspectives about the body. We seek to explore the ways that some bodies are celebrated, adorned and idealised while others are marginalised, harmed, unseen or under-represented. The strand examines the process of 'body work' across cultures and disciplines, and investigates how approaches to the body have altered over time.
