The body occupies a prime position in contemporary theoretical
work, yet still there is no consensus on exactly what it is and
what constitutes it. Contested Bodies brings together a number of
different accounts and perspectives on the body, drawing out some
of the key connections and disjunctures from this most contested of
topics. This volume features fresh and fascinating contributions
from some of the leading thinkers and upcoming theorists in the
field. Themes that run through the work include: * the place of the
body in theory * the notion of labour in the production of bodies *
the transformative potential of bodies on spaces. Grounded in real
life experience and examples, this key text will be a valuable
reference for undergraduates of sociology and gender studies.
