Title:“You deciphered me and now I am plain to read”: How the body Is a book
Author(s):Henningsen, Kadin
Subject(s):Subjectivity
Book production
Abstract:Is the body a book? Drawing on both bibliographic studies and theories of subjectivity, this paper argues that the body is a book by considering three technologies of book production: writing, reading, and circulation. I argue that the body is written through a reiterative process of reading and circulation, and that all three technologies are mutually constitutive. The body thus becomes a new mode of knowledge production that information science must consider.
