In October, I searched the Internet for parade and parade-like events related to Halloween, Zombie Walks/Crawls, and Day of the Dead. The number of events worldwide was astounding, from rural to suburban and urban settings, the visual and text documentation of these events and the people who attended them was extensive.
Thanks :) One of my versions of this blog did take a more science fiction route because the Raëlian Movement has its extraterrestrial roots. I'm not saying the Raëlians are a science fiction organization, but it did have me thinking about how nudity pops up in different future/alternate world societies, especially the utopian versions where an uninhibited society is the ideal model, while at other times it's not.
Thank you for another interesting post, Tiff!
The photo of a shirtless man and his son is very telling.
But what rises further curiosity is the presence of some works of fiction in your readings list. Would be great to hear more about what these have to say on the issue of nudity.
