Interests: modern and contemporary jewish thought; women and religion; cross-cultural views of love and the body
The body is significant materially and symbolically for producing meaning in the history of religions and cross-culturally. Imagery of the body, body parts, the senses as well as rituals have contributed to the cultural construction of the self, gender, morality, and divinity. Philosophical concepts of mind-body dualism and religious institutions dictating social hierarchies and power relations have disciplined "lived bodies" and shaped embodied social/political/religious practices and roles. This volume brings together trans-disciplinary and innovative approaches to the discourse of the body and religion.
