Social anthropologists and related social scientists examine some examples of how the conception of the human body changes in the context of new types of transactions that focus on elements of the corporeal. Their topics include the ethical field of kidney transplant, accommodating human remains, inventing prehistoric bodies, the embodiment paradigm from the perspective of Amazonian ethnography, and using bodies to communicate. Most of the six essays were first delivered at a September 2006 workshop arranged by the Royal Anthropological Institute.
