located within 3 CORPOREALITY 213 a meaningful system of social dif ferences; it has to be organized, disciplined, controlled, distributed, and subjugated to the spatial and temporal maps of the dominant socal [sic] formations. For youth is always more than childhood, more than a time of growing up, more than the innocent passing of time. Youth involves an excessiveness, an impulsiveness, a maniacal irresponsibility which escapes time and potentially goes on forever. Youth is a material problem; it is a body—the individual body and the social body of generations

195 The Corporeality of Listening Experiencing Soundscapes on Audio Guides Holger Schulze 1. Introduction In the early summer of 2012, I intended to visit a museum on the history of Berlin that would offer its visitors audio guides, one of the most significant practices of stag- ing sound as cultural heritage today.

After actually having visited several of these museums, however

Introduction Medial Bodies. Fictions, Facts and the Reinvention of Corporeality Denisa Butnaru The “body turn”, which started to develop in the 1980s and gave birth to what has been recently named body studies, is at present strongly challenged by achieve- ments in the technological field. According to the philosopher Maurice Mer- leau-Ponty, the body is our general medium for having a world. Sometimes it is restricted to the actions necessary for the conservation of life, and accordingly it posits us a bi- ological world; at other times, elaborating upon

that it subverts not only patriar- chal discourses, but also bourgeois concepts of body, sexuality, and literature. Writing is not only a mental but also a corporeal activity that goes through the body and gives voice to it.

on both the definition of Denisa Butnaru148 disability and illness and, on a more general scale, on the processes of expandabil- ity of human corporeality. Using life-story interviews of persons with motility disabilities (cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury), among whom some individuals used such robotic rehabil- itation technologies as exoskeletons, how these persons define their identity after having experienced, used, or having merely being confronted with such devices will be stressed. The aim of this essay is to show how the use of exoskeletons con

used by a group of British researchers at the University of Cambridge to study the same subject as Darwin, but in a digital environment. Two aspects of this reenactment show that the obliteration of corporeality on which the present book has focused is as real and insidious today as ever. The first point worth noting is the ease with which the three experiments involved in this story were conflated by the media. “Darwin’s Creepiest Experiment Brought Back to Life,” announced one headline. “Cambridge University to Complete Charles Darwin’s Last (and Most Creepy
