Religion and the Politics of Flesh  | Tina Hearn

How should¬†we navigate the contemporary landscape of the politics of human flesh? Where our bodies are increasingly the sites of hazard, crisis and consumption, how do theological, religious and related images of thought and practice play a role in texturing this landscape? In a new and original Temple Tract, Tina Hearn explores the background to our attitudes to ‘ideal bodies’ and draws upon theologians, activists and philosophers to consider the ways in which we might refigure the ways we think about human flesh more creatively and positively.
