ANTH 622 - Embodiment and the Body

3 Credit(s)

This course will explore the topic of embodiment from multiple perspectives: social and cultural influences on the conceptualization and physical presentation of self, biological imprints of social and environmental contexts, mechanisms of biological embedding including stress physiology and nutritional ecology, residual embodiment of environments via intergenerational biological transmission, and sensory experiences of physical worlds. The course will also explore innovative methodologies for incorporating embodiment into research, with particular emphasis on methods that encourage community and public engagement, such as sensory ethnography and haptic geography mapping.
