Why is the human body such a contested site of ethical concern? Why are bodies thought to be so in need of description and regulation? Sexual practices, gendered presentations, bodily sizes, physical aptitudes, colors of skin, styles of hair -- all are both intimately felt and socially inscribed. Bodies exist at the intersection of the most private and the most public, and are lived in relation to powerful social norms. In this course, we will turn to feminisms, both academic and activist, to help us consider the ethics of embodiment.
