Summary

This exciting collection opens up many new conversations on BodyPlace and introduces new theories of embodied places and the placing of bodies.
Extensive introductory and concluding sections guide students through the key debates and themes. Places Through the Body draws on a wide range of contemporary examples and creative ideas to address such topics as:
* How racist ideologies are embedded in modern architechtural discourse and practice
* How urban spaces make bodies disabled
* How the seemingly virtual worlds of knowledge and technology are embodied
* How gyms enable women body builders to make new kinds of bodies
* How male bodies are placed onto the silver screen
* New kinds of femininity
Here geographers, architects, anthropologists, artists, film theorists, theorists of cultural studies and psycho-analysis work alongside each other to make clear connections between bodies and places.
