Transforming Bodies Conference

Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 8:00am to 5:00pm

Klarman Hall, K161
232 East Ave, Ithaca, NY 14853

Presented by the Early Modern Conversions project and Cornell University

In this conference, we propose to explore the centrality of bodies to concepts and practices of

conversion in the early modern world. How are bodies – animal, human, vegetal,

epistemological – transformed by these concepts and practices, and how do they transform the

concepts and practices by their material and virtual presences, by their own performances and

practices of conversion, by their resistance to metaphysical and ontological interpretation?
