Review of Waskul & Vannini’s Body/Embodiment #sssi #sociology #body

The recently published Special Issue on ‘The Senses in Social Interaction‘ has highlighted again the importance of the body for theory and research in Symbolic Interactionism. Over the past decades a large number of articles have been concerned with the body. Quite a few of these articles were written by Dennis Waskul and Phillip Vannini, the editors of the book “Body/Embodiment: Symbolic Interaction and the Sociology of the Body” that Ryan McVeigh has reviewed for our journal. The book was originally published in 2006. Now the publisher decided the volume was worthwhile an (unrevised) paperback edition.
