This exciting collection of work from leading feminist scholars extends the growing feminist literature on lived and imagined embodiment and argues for consideration of the skin as a site where bodies take form...already written upon, but open to endless re-inscription.

Pierced, mutilated and marked, mortified and glorified, scarred by disease, and stretched and enveloping the skin of another in pregnancy, skin is seen here as both a boundary and a point of connection. It is the place we are touched and is touched by others in both the most private and public of experiences. It is also the most visible marker of a raced, sexed and nationalized history.
