CORPUS aims to offer a forum of cross-thinking and open dialogues about this fascinating object of study.CORPUS now boasts around two hundred fifty researchers from more than fifty differentcountries. The themes of the preceding symposia were The Beautiful and the Ugly: BodyRepresentations (Lisboa, January 2010) and Foreign Bodies: Enhancing & Invading theHuman Body (Moscow, May 2010). The third International Symposium of CORPUS isorganised with the support of the  Escuela Nacional Superior de Folklore José María Arguedas , the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos and the Universidad Particular  Ricardo Palma . Its theme will be Bodies & Folklore(s): Legacies, Constructions andPerformances .Like numerous cultures worldwide, the Peruvian cultures offer a plethora of dances, bodytechniques, oral literature or costumes, which constitute strong cultural uniqueness. A lot of them can be considered as legacies, because they are the results of a more or less long history.When the people who perform these dances, play these games or wear these clothes or/andwhen the people who watch them performing these dances, playing these games or wearingthese clothes are conscious of their particularity, they become folkloric dances, games,literature or costumes. In certain places, at certain times, they can be rejected, scorned or evencombated by elites. In others, they can be highly valorised, considered as an exaltation of the  spirit of a people. The transformation of a particular body technique in folklore can be thedesire of the Power or a resistance act. The folklorized body can be a more or less agreeableexhibition of the otherness for the subject who watches it and a complex game with his ownidentity for the subject who performs it. We invite researchers (historians, anthropologists,archaeologists, psychologists, philosophers, physicians, literature, art specialists, etc.)interested in these questions regarding the fascinating connections between body and folkloreto participate in this meeting, especially considering one of the following themes: ã   Body techniques & Folklore: dances, games and sports. ã   Artefacts and folkloric transformations of the body: traditional clothes, masks, making-up, etc. ã   Bodies & Folkloric music: rhythms, instruments, performances and transgressions. ã   Decontextualization and folklorization of corporal practices or body knowledge. ã   Performing folklore: contexts and motivations. ã   Body representations in folkloric art and literature. ã   Folkloric bodies and ethnic stereotypes.Presentations will be 20 minutes long and must be delivered in English or in Spanish.
