Embodied Knowledges - An interdisciplinary symposium
Wednesday, 10 August 2011
Call for papers - 19-21 October 2011
For CREATEC’s annual symposium, researchers across disciplines will gather to consider the influence of embodiment on their work. Embodiment is a concept that underpins an array of research ranging from education and environmental studies, poetry and the performing arts to philosophy and psychology, history and the health sciences. But, in light of the association between knowledge and thinking, what is the relationship between knowledge and the body? This year’s CREATEC symposium will address this critical question and, in doing so, will highlight the stimulating breadth and diversity of enquiry into embodied knowledges taking place at Edith Cowan University and elsewhere.
We invite abstracts of 250-300 words to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 31 August 2011. Presenters need not be affiliated with ECU. A nominal $25 registration fee will include morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
Symposium presenters will be eligible to submit their papers for possible publication in either M/C Journal or Axon: Creative Explorations. Both of these journals will publish a themed issue on embodiment in 2012.
