PhD course: The Body at Work, Stockholm University
This course is offered as a part of the Doctoral School in the Humanities by the Department of Ethnology, History of Religion and Gender Studies in collaboration with the Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies and the Department of History. The course is held in April 2017.
This course takes as its starting point the material and sensual experiences of bodies in action: working, moving, learning bodies. It explores current approaches across a range of humanities disciplines which put a new focus on material engagment, how meanings emerge through practice, and embodied experience as a basis for understanding society.
Lectures will be drawn from history, archaeology, and gender studies. The course includes a practical element through workshops with practitioners of a bodily performance discipline; and with a skilled craft-worker, such as a smith.
