Body & Society was launched in 1995 to cater for the upsurge of interest
in the social and cultural analysis of the human body that has taken
place in recent years. Its editors are Mike Featherstone and Bryan S Turner.

Body & Society centrally concerns itself with debates in feminism,
technology, ecology, postmodernism, medicine, ethics and consumerism
which take the body as the central analytic issue in the questioning of
established paradigms.

The journal examines the extensive range of issue that have emerged from
these debates by engaging with the contributions of writers such as:
Jean Baudrillard, Pierre Bourdieu, Judith Butler, Helene Cixous,
Deleuze/Guattari, Mary Douglas, Norbert Elias, Michel Foucault, Donna
Haraway, Julia Kristeva, Marcel Mauss, Maurice Merleau-Ponty and others.

The journal is dedicated to the publication of contemporary empirical
and theoretical work from a wide range of disciplines, including
anthropology; art history; communication; cultural history; cultural
studies; feminism; film studies; health studies; leisure studies;
medical history; philosophy; psychology; religious studies; sociology;
and sports studies.
