This course will provide an introduction to recent sociological thinking about the body in social, cultural and historical contexts. Topics will include a consideration of bodies as objects of discipline, as gendered and classed constructions, and as means of expression regarding race and sexuality. In short, we will examine the body as a set of experiences and institutions. Particular attention will be paid to that which is perceived to be “natural” and “normal,” the assumptions underlying social understandings of bodies, and the implications of those assumptions for social change.
