Bodies in Transit 2: Genders, Mobilities, and Interdependencies
This project links up to the previous one, “Bodies in Transit: From Conflict to Healing” in its focus on embodiment, and on how bodies are historically transformed through social relations and their technologies from feminist, queer, and posthuman theoretical approaches. The current project shifts the focus from violence and healing to the body and its metamorphoses within a wider network of human and non-human actions. This general topic comprises four specific concepts that will be addressed in four clusters: embodiments, mobilities, interdependencies, accountability.
It is an international project comprising 41 scholars based at Spanish, Italian, Finnish, British and Hungarian Universities. The coordinators are Prof. Pilar Cuder-Domingez (University of Huelva) and Prof. Belén Martín Luca (University of Vigo). TNT, University of Szeged, the Hungarian partner, is reperesented by Anna Kérchy with her project in the Embodiment cluster, and by Erzsébet Barát, with her project in the Mobilities cluster.
The funding is provided by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (ref. FFI2017-84555-C2-1-P) and the European Regional Development Fund.
