Bodily Integrity, UZH 9-10 Sept 2013

Integrität des Körpers / L’intégrité corporelle

An International Research Seminar / 9-10 Sept 2013 / Zurich

The question of appropriate clothing in public spaces, the question of circumcision, the practice of exchange and circulation of body parts, organs, and body fluids, and the creation/formation of body according to one’s own view of world and life, and the relations between bodies have become central aspects of public and political discourses.

Academic research tries to unfold and “unsettle” these often complex and naturalized public discourses. The research seminar “Bodily Integrity” aims to explore the notion of “integrity” as both descriptive and normative category.

The seminar will be bi-lingual (German and French).


The program is available as PDF.
