Workshop: 
The Medical Humanities
Meeting Description: 

Please join us for a Conversation and Q&A with Cari Costanzo. Dr. Costanzo is a cultural anthropologist (PhD Stanford 2005) who co-teaches Reading the Body in Stanford’s Thinking Matters program, helping individuals unfold their stories. Her research and writing focus on ritual, embodiment, and identity formation in contemporary society, looking closely at the impact of social media on body image and the cultural construction of race, class, gender, and sexuality. Integrating her work as an ethnographer and an academic director, Cari designs body map workshops that combine cultural awareness with artistic and contemplative practices to encourage the reframing and reclaiming of embodied experiences, enabling the ability to both reflect upon and creatively share one's life story. 

Body Mapping is a creative tool that combines cultural awareness, contemplative practice, and artistic expression to develop a visual ‘map’ of one’s life story. The Ethnographic Body Map workshops Dr. Costanzo designs utilize an anthropological lens, encouraging individuals to locate the cultural landscape(s) that both positively and negatively shape our embodied selves, creating a space for active awareness and empowerment.
