‘Harvested Bodies’: Biocultural Linkages Of Structural Violence And Identity

Project Details


Social injustice and inequality have a substantial impact on health, well-being and identity, and the foundations that uphold these structures were firmly established in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Through bioarchaeological analyses of historical anatomical collections, this project will elucidate the effects of structural violence on the body. The key goals are to investigate the direct and long-term consequences of social inequality, the development of human anatomical science and its foundation based on the life experiences and “othering” of the so-called “lower” classes, and the ideological role of human anatomy studies in the formation of nationhood and collective identities.
