70). CORPORATE BODIES AND PLASTIC BODIES During the academic movement from the naturalistic to the socially constructed body, `western' societies' relationship to and construction of the body have also altered. The assumptions about `the body' which solidified from biological science into the `anatomising urge' are being disrupted by contemporary societal and technological changes. The marriage of `new' technologies (for example, cosmetic surgery, genetic engineering and information and virtual reality technologies) and the consumer culture emphasis on choice highlight the potential for reshaping the body.

Anthropology is somewhat different. Where there are language differences, and often considerable difficulties in access to a language (with perhaps no written forms and dictionaries), bodily expression becomes more `visible' and important. However the ways in which the bodies of people from different cultures have been defined and appropriated by the discipline suggests a more political reading.
