Description - Politics of Touch by Erin Manning
Political philosophy has long been bound by traditional thinking about the body and the senses. Politics of Touch explores the ways in which sensing bodies continually run up against existing political structures. Manning develops a new way to conceive the role of the senses, and of touch in particular. Exploring concepts of violence, gender, sexuality, security, democracy, and identity, she traces the ways in which touch informs and reforms the body.
