Traveling skin: A cartography of the body

Stacy Holman Jones, Anne Harris

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Maps are visual and affective representations that materially produce territories- not only multiple spaces and entryways, but also expanses of time and embodiments. This essay, a cartography of the body, writes the shifting, temporary relationship between experience (a doing), the corporeal (embodiment), and the known (knowledge), and offers one example of how we might chart territories of material and affective connection in and through such landscapes. It remembers the map as a making that attempts to mark intensities, layers of being - of bodies, of times, places, and actions - in their many versions.
