Conflict and the Social Body: Vol. 2(1) 2015

Contexts of the Social Body:

The concept of the Social Body is meant to capture a wide range of phenomena. Examples follow:

Sociology: In the most general sense it refers to the social collective where the social body is analogous to the individual body - so conflict and the social body would refer to the ways in which the social collective (an an embodied, material phenomenon) is constituted, organized, broken, etc through conflict.

Health Sciences: It could mean the biological body which (at least from a socioligcal perspective) also has social elements to it - how are biological bodies impacted by conflict?

Communication and Culture: The Social Body refers to the ways that bodies in conflict - both individual and social - are represented in television, art, language and other media.
