Session Title:
Body Modification - Historic Roots to Modern Practices
Presenters:
Stephen Escobar
Category:
Diversity
Date:
Monday, January 8th 2018
Start Time:
9:00 AM
Session Length:
2 Hours
Room:
LSC 378
Description:
Body modification (tattoos, piercings, etc.) have existed within many cultures from around the world since time in memoriam. The reasons for body modification can vary greatly from person to person/culture to culture. It can be cultural rites/traditions, standards of beauty, age based milestones, religious requirements and yes, even just because one can. This presentation will take you back 5,000 years to the oldest known tattooing practice to the modern day. We will discuss a form of diversity that is (typically) self-elected and what that can mean in such a diverse world. The world of body modification is vast so the information from this presentation will hopefully provide you with a general idea of how to understand those who participate in this practice. We will review several tribal traditions as well as newer forms of modification. Questions will be most welcome during this presentation so if you have something that you've been too afraid to ask, this would be a great time to do so.
Goals and Target Audience:
The main goal of this presentation is to expand on understanding this area of diversity. With this ever changing world and the prevalence of the tattooing and body modification industry, I seek to expand people's understanding of what it means to modify oneself externally (and in part, internally); what that may mean culturally, personally or professionally. My target audience is anyone who wishes to have an understanding of these practices and the varying reasons that they are done; whether that be students, current professionals or any others.
