Call for Proposals: Palgrave Studies in Globalization and Embodiment

About the series: 
This cutting-edge series will address how global forces impact human bodies and the individual and collective practices associated with them. Books in this series will explore the globalization of bodily practices as well as how the interaction of local and global ideas about bodies produces particular forms of embodiment. We are particularly interested in research covering the ways that globalization engenders inbetween spaces, hybrid identities and ‘body projects.’ As such, we welcome proposals for monographs, edited collections, and Palgrave Pivots on studies that explore the following topics:

  • Migration and embodiment
  • Transnational media and body image(s)
  • Commodification of bodies and body parts
  • Modernity/development and bodies
  • “Transnational Body Projects” and body modification
