Thinking the body as a basis, provocation and burden of life

Studies in intercultural and historical contexts

Edited by: Gert Melville and Carlos Ruta
The body is at the same time a place where we express duration and/or discontinuity in history, a witness of radical social changes, and a factor of stabilization, but also of the transformation of human life - and therefore an eminent challenge for every human being. This book will contribute in a decisively interdisciplinary and cross-cultural way to a better understanding of the place, role, and connection of the body within social, political, and cultural shifts.
