Humans and Bodies

‘Humans and Bodies’ draws together scholars from across the faculty who are working on the broad question of the human body in literature, culture, philosophy, society and politics. The cluster’s members work on a range of questions relating to the human body, such as: disability, trauma, gender, race, corporeality, marginalisation, eugenics, death and life, the physical vs. the psychic, the body and knowledge, practices of personhood, the post- and trans-human, technology in the body, performance, evolution and devolution. A monthly reading group takes place during teaching time.

Coordinators: Dr Rhian Atkin and Dr Claire Shaw.
