The Body

‌definitions, treatment, exchanges, and identities

As part 4 of 12 of our annual special themed issues series, Digest Magazine's "the BODY" issue is a collection of expressions of definitions, treatment, exchanges, and identities having to do with the human body.  We invite academic, casual, critical, and artistic contributions for all special themed issues.

"the BODY" comes out annually the first week of December.  Our purpose in offering a broad theme is to not limit the large spectrums of topics and experiences having to do with the human body.  Thus, if you have something you would like to share and you believe it is connected to this theme, we are excited to hear from you.
