This week we discussed the importance of hope, spirit, and care in the processes of healing and recovering bodies from violence, rape, annihilation, humiliation, and denigration, and we considered the potential submissive dimensions of hope, spirit, and care in those precise same processes.
On Monday we discussed Greenwood and Delgado’s article on fitness and spirituality, as well as the videos by Beyoncé and Cardi B. On Wednesday we expanded our discussion of ‘recovering bodies’ and the readings and concepts we addressed on Monday, this time after hearing an audio recording by Professor Teresa Delgado.
For this week’s post, write up any questions, comments, or thoughts you had as we read and discussed “‘This Is Your Body’…” I will collect all your posts and share them with Dr. Delgado, and she will respond to them later in the semester. Post your thoughts or questions or comments by Sunday at midnight.
