    Abstract

    [automatically translated] interdisciplinary survey on representations of the colonized and the prisoner's body, in the context of European colonialism, in Australia and in the Pacific, runs on the edge of this collection of essays by authors from different countries and different backgrounds. The central themes of Body Trade, the commodification of the body of the Other and the representations of the colonized, are discussed with the aim to review the myths of Western civilization and cannibalism, through the analysis of a wide repertoire of colonial practices, taken in the subject of novels, magazines, photographs and films, all works published over a period which runs from the eighteenth century to the present day.
