Erotic. Maternal. Cultural. Symbolic. Medical.
What are breasts? How are they imagined? And who gets to decide?
Let’s open up the discussion.
This special open access journal issue on Reimaging Breasts, focuses on visual representations in order to unsettle conventional ideas about breasts, which are often conceived in medicalized, objectified, sexualized, maternal, colonial and heteronormative terms. It will explore resistant and subversive voices and images where breasts are not just biological body parts, but where their presence or absence can disrupt medical, social, cultural, political and/or economic norms and practices.
