Synopsis

Awareness of the role that physical difference plays in an individual's ability to negotiate personal and cultural spaces has spread into a variety of disciplines within the past two decades. This collection of essays adds to the growing corpus of work exploring the body as a site of cultural inscription by focusing exclusively on how this process plays out in the sphere of popular culture. The nine essays in this collection touch on a variety of topics of interest to both scholars and students of the body, ranging from contested issues within the discourse on fat and anorexia, to tattoos, domestic violence campaigns, mastectomy, neurasthenia, and gendered identity. By drawing on the work of scholars from a variety of disciplines within the social sciences and humanities, this collection provides models of how different disciplines approach the body. By incorporating perspectives from new and emerging fields like New Historicism, as well as Queer Theory, Fat, and Disability Studies, it simultaneously demonstrates how the use of a body perspective can expand and enliven understanding within these disciplines, and thus should be of interest to a wide variety of readers.

Lori Duin Kelly is Mary Robertson Williams Chair in the Department of English at Carroll College in Waukesha, Wisconsin, where she teaches American Literature and courses in Race and Gender. Her work, which explores the intersection of Victorian medical texts and gender issues, has appeared in Notes on Contemporary Literature, Conradiana, Southern Studies, Academic Medicine, and Studies in Popular Culture. She currently chairs the Body and Physical Difference area of the Popular Culture Association.
