Telling the Flesh: life writing, citizenship and the body, asks the following questions:
How do people narrate the stories of their lives? How do they narrate the stories of their bodies? And what stories do bodies have to tell? How might we capture stories that exist beyond language? What happens when the body and its workings come into language? How does language shape our understanding of our bodily selves? How do our bodily selves inform our language? Can our stories exist without our bodies? Can we exist without our bodies?
Part repository for intriguing articles, part research journal, part free form rumination, this blog on life writing and the body seeks to explore the myriad ways in which we tell the flesh…and it tells us.
