Conjunctions:69, Being Bodies, is an exploration of the complex circumstances of our flesh-and-blood existence.Our bodies dance, they’re inked, they contain prosthetics and implants. Our bodies are gendered, though not always correlative with how we perceive ourselves. Some of us use our bodies for violence, others sacrifice our bodies for others. Our bodies are mortal, their days numbered. We do with them what we can and what we will.Through innovative poetry, fiction, and narrative nonfiction, contributors to Being Bodies will consider bodies as subjects, bodies as objects, bodies as loci of politics, illness, nature, artifice, performance, power, abuse, reward, disgust, and desire.
