image of Method & Theory in the Study of Religion

"The body" and "embodiment" are now firmly entrenched in the working vocabulary of the study of religion, yet there is little consensus on what such terms mean. This essay reviews the widely varying uses, focusing on main trajectories of the "lived body", the "semiotic body", and the "productive and produced body". Since "the body" must always be set in a particular narrative strategy in any given ethnography, complications arise when the various, sometimes contradictory, uses of "the body" are not kept distinct or are presumed to be one. This essay presents case studies on how varying uses are actually implemented in writing ethnography, and calls for a return to clear specification of how and why "the body" is invoked.
