About this book

Globalization is often thought of as an abstract process that happens "out there" in the world. But people are ultimately the driving force of global change, and people have bodies that are absent from current conversations about globalization. The original scholarly research and first-person accounts of embodiment in this volume explore the role of bodies in the flows of people, money, commodities, and ideas across borders. From Zumba fitness classes to martial arts to fashion blogs and the meanings of tattooing, the contributors examine migrating body practices and ideals that stretch across national boundaries.

Reviews

“Bodies without Borders makes an important connection between globalisation and the border versus body modification and boundaries of the body. … the book traces not only the powers of globalisation and neoliberalism but also the porosity of both political borders and physical bodies. It raises crucial questions around the debates on embodiment and subjectivity and will be of much interest to scholars working on gender issues, borders, globalisation, and neoliberalism.” (Rimple Mehta, Border Criminologies, law.ox.ac.uk, May, 2016)

"From Zumba and tattooing to bulletproof fashion and beauty regimes, a unique and provocative look into the body politics of globalization that blends transdisciplinary and transnational analyses of and personal reflections on the restructuring of bodies, identities, and embodied knowledge." - Anne Sisson Runyan, Professor, Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, University of Cincinnati, USA
