ETRUSCAN BODY
   Much attention to the Etruscans has been implicitly focused on the body, because the burial record has been so prominent in Etruscan research. However, more recently the interdisciplinary theory of the body has received more attention. Initially, this was focused on the study of women, which has gradually developed into a study of gender, and more recently into explicitly theoretical accounts, notably through the work of Vedia Izzet and Corinna Riva among scholars writing in English.
