“The socialization of the body is one with its conversion into a means of production” – François Guéry & Didier Deleule.

The Body Productive is a one-day, interdisciplinary conference, to be held at Birkbeck, University of London on 8th December 2018. We invite submissions from scholars, activists and artists on the relationships – past and present – between capitalism, work and the body.

Submissions are now closed, and a draft schedule will be published soon.

The Body Productive is kindly supported by Birkbeck, University of London, the Wellcome Trust, the Institut Français du Royaume-Uni, and the Higher Education, Research and Innovation Department of the French Embassy in the United Kingdom.
