Arizona's recent attack on ethnic studies brings to glaring light the relationship between the production of cultures, racial identities, and nations. How are national identities contingent on the constitution of, or at least the appearance of, a homogeneous racial identity, which in turn, is produced and maintained through the vigilant regularization of a distinct national culture?

Much has been said about bodies, yet the body still remains one of the most contested concepts in fields such as anthropology, art, history, literature, medicine, philosophy, religion, and gender/sexuality. In *An Essay Concerning Human Understanding* (1689), John Locke noted that all "are born into the world, being surrounded by bodies that perpetually and diversely affect them." By conceptualizing the world as one of bodies in contact, his assertion prefaced a growing eighteenth-century preoccupation with corporeality. This panel seeks to explore such investigations of the body by examining how these figures wrote about and experienced bodies, health, illness, contagion, mixture, and death.
