This InterDisciplines special issue “The body and its Multiple Dimensions" focus is understanding the body from different perspectives, such as from physical to metaphysical bodies, to social, to political and economic bodies. Common across the individual articles is an understanding of the body as a sociological and historical category in the center of an analysis of power relations, discourses, social transformations and contested meanings. Some papers demonstrate how biopolitical instruments use the body along intersectional categories for political purposes, which is in line with Foucault’s theory about bodies, being racialized, sexualized and gendered as a part of a biopolitical project.
