Thank you to those who attended our first round table discussion ‘Bringing the body (back) in’! We are pleased to announce our next discussion on 10th May 2011 ‘Embodied Identity and Cosmetic Alteration’ (please see attached flyer). On suggestions from the last meeting, we have included suggestions of texts to read before the discussion as an introduction to the issues – these are both available through the e-library.
