Commun(icat)ing Bodies

Bodies as a Medium in Religious Symbol Systems, ed. by Alexander D. Ornella, Stefanie Knauss, Anna-K. Höpflinger

Cover: Commun(icat)ing Bodies

As a basic medium of human interaction, the body is fundamental to socio-cultural communication systems, in particular the communication system of religion.

This volume studies these systems and the role that the body plays in their organization through the perspective of the concept of body as a medium and by drawing on media and communication theory.
