Insecure bodies/selves: introduction to theme section

Philo, C. (2014) Insecure bodies/selves: introduction to theme section. Social and Cultural Geography, 15(3), pp. 284-290. (doi: 10.1080/14649365.2014.880217)




This short piece introduces a three-paper theme section on the theme of ‘Insecure bodies/selves’, growing out of a conference session held in 2012. Using the brief example of a brain-injured soldier's ‘shattered world’, creating a thoroughly ‘unsecured’ self/body, attention is given to how contemporary human geography has gradually opened itself to engaging with the multiple spaces of insecure bodies/selves. The three papers are then formally outlined and situated within these new currents of geographical and trans-disciplinary scholarship.
