This essay focuses on the spatial perceptions of the body presented in twenty- one autobiographical narratives by Italian women who experienced anorexia or bulimia in the last three decades. The goal is not to present a picture of the social etiology of anorexia in Italy, but to highlight the importance of space as an analytic tool for understanding how anorexic women experience and construct their body and subjectivity in interaction with other social actors within spatialized social structures. The author proposes a sociological-phenomenological approach to thinking about anorexia spatially, starting from a multilayer understanding of space as material, social, symbolic and relational dimensions.
Keywords: Empty Bodies. The spatialization of Self in the autobiographies of anorexic women
