      Please forward to potentially interested parties:

      Original essays are invited for a collection tentatively entitled
      "Extreme Bodies: Cultures of Body Modification and Discourses of
      Beauty." The purpose of this book is to explore the cultural
      significance of bodies and body modifications from a variety of
      scholarly approaches and perspectives. Ideally this collection will be a
      comprehensive introductory textbook for the growing interest in bodies
      and will be suitable for use at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

      Possible topics include social constructions and performances of Beauty,
      as well as theoretical analyses of Body Modification Culture (from
      grooming habits to amputation fetishes). Examples include: practices of
      permanent body modification (tattooing or branding) within "mainstream"
      and sub-cultures; plastic/cosmetic surgery; the negotiation of cultural
      boundaries between "normative" and "acceptable" modifications vs.
      "extreme," "aberrant," "devious" etc.; and the future of body
      modification in light of new medical technologies.

      Studies of Gender and Sexuality, Race, Ethnicity, and Class are
      encouraged and any number of methodological/theoretical approaches are
      appropriate, including but limited to: Performance, Women's Studies,
      Sociology, Literary Analysis, Anthropology, Culture Studies, Historical
      Analysis, Psychology, Folklore, etc.

      Please submit 2-page proposals or completed manuscripts (MLA style,
      15-25 pages in length) to:

      above email addresses.

      The deadline for submission of completed papers is August 16th, 2002.
