Possible topics might include (but are not limited to):

- Dissection, the medical ’gaze’ and medical illustration

- Corporeality and the flesh in the visual, written and performing arts

- The body in religious iconography, hagiography and religious performance

- Gesture, kinesics and the expression of emotions

- Corporal punishment and bodily shaming

- Clothing, garments and cosmetics, and their significance

The event will take place in Durham University (6-7 July 2010)
