Abstract

This article is a whistle-stop tour of the Anthropocene body and its emergence and expression (particularly in the Victorian period) as a response to sudden changes to ecologies of labour that took place as a result of the Industrial Revolution. Using aspects of the body (such as height) and parts of the body (the spine and knees), the article examines the ways in which the nineteenth-century work experience might be seen as a turning point for the development of many pathologies in the modern body.
