   schema:description ""Exploring body politics, embodiment, the senses, affect, and emotion, Mascia-Lees brings together a key group of scholars to examine historical and contemporary approaches to, and conceptualizations of, the body. The authors situate their examination of embodiment in lived worlds, scientific labs, medical clinics, and virtual worlds. They explore topics such as biopower, the body beautiful, transgenderism, genomics, masculinities, modification, pain, the senses, racialization, and virtuality. A Companion to the Anthropology of the Body and Embodiment also offers new theoretical frameworks and conceptual categories which will set the parameters for future research on bodies and embodiments"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
