For your final project, you will submit a Body (Auto)Biography: your own attempt at narrativizing body burden. In this assignment you will consider a body (your own, or someone else’s) and its relationship to the various environments with/in which it has lived. While the format of this narrative is open, you must specify which body and environment/s you have chosen to understand, and how gender/sexuality figure into your analysis. In 10-12 tightly crafted pages, your task is to mobilize our readings as well as your own external research to write a deeply contextualized history of a body’s multiscalar entanglements with the world.
You can begin your research via Google Scholar, or in the TK
