Body Trouble: Psychological Negotiation of the Physical Self
PSYC 368
Fall 2008 not offered

Historically, Western thought has represented the body as distinct from, or alien to, the mental or spiritual self. This course will review the role that the body has historically played in psychological theory and conceptions of the self. Experiences that problematize presumed relationships between body and self (such as gender ambiguity, physical trauma, eating disorders, or disability) will be explored through the reading of theory and memoirs.
