CfP: Power and the Body

Power and the Body

Paper Session for the 2016 ESS Annual Meeting

Boston, March 17-20, 2016

Power is a topic that is commonly explored through its traditional channels of action, such as political parties, bureaucratic structures, and formal organizations. This panel, however, aims to explore the composition of power through the lenses of the body. It aims to explore the nature of domination, privilege and lack-of-privilege from a corporeal standpoint. This session wants to create a dialogue among scholars using the body as an analytical lens to examine a wide range of sites and activities, such as racial dynamics in formal/informal organizations, gender interactions in the leisure/public sphere, and class relations in un/academic settings, to mentioned a few.  Please submit an abstract (200 words) directly to  We will alert you asap about whether or not the presentation will be included in the panel so that you can pop the abstract into the general system in plenty of time to be slotted in another session.
