About this product
- DescriptionPresents an argument that bodies are knowable only through culture and history; they are not in any simple way natural, nor free of relations of power. This book traces the construction of particular deviant bodies, including the homosexual body, the HIV-infected body, the infertile body, the deaf body, the colonized body, and the criminal body.
- Author BiographyJENNIFER TERRY, assistant Professor of Values in Science and Technology in the Division of Comparative Studies at Ohio State University, has written articles on queer theory, women and medical surveillance, and the history of sexual science in the United States.

JACQUELINE URLA is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She is working on a collaborative research project exploring the representation of whiteness in native peoples' art, material culture, and visual media.
