The essays in The Flesh Made Text Made Flesh explore the complexities of modern and post-modern embodiment by drawing attention to a marked tendency in contemporary theory and cultural practice to «return to flesh and redefine its limits, meanings, and potentialities. Engaging with issues as diverse as technologized performance, cosmetic surgery, and lifestyle TV, the essays in this collection raise crucial questions and open up new horizons for further research in current debates surrounding enfleshment. The cross-disciplinarity of this book, which can be used in undergraduate and post-graduate teaching, will attract the attention of scholars from a diversity of fields, such as literature, sociology, popular culture, art, theater, and film.
