The English-language publication will summarize the outcome of the two-year research programme. It will consist of fourteen case studies, which offer a better understanding of the ways in which power is exercised, sustained, justified, represented and challenged. The publication will analyze processes that lead to the establishment, strengthening and contestation of bodies politic and will explore relationships between the body natural and body politic. The studies will explore visual and literary artifacts, cultural memory, rituals of power and religious rites as well as the role of science and technology in reshaping political imagery and praxes.
The book is planned to be released in the summer of 2016.
