What changes to the defined object of study manifest when historians account for an “entangled” perspective of the body, its practices and its relation to knowledge production? Does considerable research from this point of view already exist in European scholarship? How have different historiographies (national, systematic, or field-specific, i.e., history of medicine, history of dance, history of religion) dealt with the entanglement of bodies? 
Each paper should include concrete empirical research, reflections on the way that source material implicates or reveals the “entanglement” of bodies as described above, and an overview of existing historiography (if possible, including French, German, and Italian historiographical strands) concerned with the theme to be discussed.
