Body Battlegrounds: Transgressions, Tensions, and Transformations offers a superb learning resource for exploring the body in social, emotional, cultural, and political contexts across many different career stages and disciplines. Edited by seasoned embodiment scholars Dr. Chris Bobel and Dr. Samantha Kwan, this new collection brings together 13 research reflections and 16 personal essays on different aspects of embodied resistance. It offers an expansive view of intersecting forms of body marginalization and ways to center these experiences in seeking embodiment justice. It also makes a superb resource for orienting learners at all career stages to embodied resistance and its crucial role in contemporary society. Body Battlegrounds is particularly useful for qualitative pedagogy because it presents diverse applications of qualitative methods in discovering patterns of embodied resistance.
