This class will introduce some major sociological issues around (and about) the notion of the Body. We will examine the various social and cultural practices that determine the body, such as gender and sexuality, race and migration, citizenship, issues of ‘belonging’ and ‘deviation’. The Body is a site of a lot of controversy, both social and political, and the focus of various practices of governing, which would lead us to discuss some ethical issues surrounding this concept. Finally, we will also look at how bodies intersect and live with each other and touch upon themes of collective movements
