TitelGraduate Student Conference: Configurations of Human Bodies

At our 2015 GGSA conference, we will examine cultural practices and traditions that shape our conceptions of human bodies. These conceptions have been subject of discussions in the arts, literature, sciences, and the public sphere. Notions of crises and imbalances have held a prominent place among recent theories concerning the human body. Theorist Gernot Böhme argues that the Western intellectual tradition has given undue preference to the rational aspect of human beings over bodily aspects of human existence. Following his reassessment of the human/nature relation, he argues that we as humans need to relearn what it means not just to have, but to be a body.
Re-familiarizations and re-configurations of human bodies, however, have not been unique to aesthetics and the environmental humanities. Theories concerning the understanding and significance of bodies are central to studies of disability, race, gender, medicine, ethics, and religions. At our conference, we seek to consolidate perspectives from various fields of study to investigate the consequences, possibilities, and limitations that arise from different conceptions of human bodies. We therefore welcome presentations concerning – but not limited to – the following ideas:

--bodies, power, and necropolitics
--body politics
--"Other" bodies: exoticism and bodies as spectacle
--cult of the body: perfecting and modifying bodies
--disability, mutation, and normativity
--restraining the body: taboos concerning bodies
--scientific perspectives on the body
--practices regarding aging and death
--corpses and bodies in states of decomposition
--aesthetics and aisthetics: artistic practices and bodily perception
--designed and designing the body

Please submit an abstract of 250-300 words to Marcus Breyer ( by October 31st, 2014. Expected presentation length will be 20 minutes. Presentations in English or German welcome.
