The aim of this research project is to explore the role of biomedical imaging by looking at the artefacts that produce it, at how it is used in medical practice, and how it is received by patients and caregivers who are involved. In particular, the project will explore how these images are involved in changing conceptions of the human body. We are still testing the new HRA website to ensure it meets your needs.

Remaking the Body: Rehabilitation and Change
It takes as its central subject the imagined failure of French manhood that was mapped out in this realm by physical culturist 'experts', often physicians. Their diagnosis of intertwined crises in masculine virility and national vitality was surprisingly widely shared across popular and political culture. Joan Tumblety traces these patterns of thinking about the male body across a seemingly disparate set of voices, all of whom argued that the physical training of men offered a salve to France's real and imagined woes.
In interrogating a range of sources, from get-fit manuals and the popular press, to the mobilising campaigns of popular politics on left and right and official debates about physical education, Tumblety illustrates how the realm of male physical culture was presented as an instrument of social hygiene as well as an instrument of political struggle.
In highlighting the purchase of these concerns in the interwar years, the book ultimately sheds light on the roots of Vichy's project for masculine renewal after the military defeat of Introduction 1: Physical culturists, masculine ideals, and social hygiene 2: The body of the citizen-soldier: physical education and the state 3: Male bodies between associative life and consumer spectacle: the mass press and popular sporting practice 4: The uses of sport and physical culture in mass politics: mobilizing the 'new man', 5: Mass culture and mass politics, 6: The defeat of French manhood and the Vichy imagination Conclusion Bibliograhy.
