Kinesthetic Empathy: Concepts and Contexts
An International Conference hosted by The Watching Dance Project

Thursday 22 and Friday 23 April 2010 at Hulme Hall, The University of Manchester

papers | panels | posters| workshops | screenings

There is a growing interest in kinesthesia, empathy and kinesthetic empathy as pivotal

concepts across different disciplines and media, reflecting current concern with ‘affect’ as an object of enquiry, interrogation of notions of presence, embodiment and the senses, re-examination of phenomenology, and widespread interest in neuroscientific investigation (notably in the ‘mirror neuron’ system).


This conference will bring together international researchers and practitioners in fields including neuroscience, dance, film, music, and contemporary embodied practices to explore the nature and role of kinesthetic empathy.  It will aim to open up dialogues between different practices and theoretical approaches.


Keynote speakers will include Alain Berthoz (neurophysiology of movement/perception); Rachel Davies (artist/filmmaker); Susan Foster (choreographer/dancer/writer); Christian Keysers (neuroimaging/social brain); Chris Nash (photographer) and Alex Reuben (filmmaker).
