Kinesthetic Empathy: Concepts and Contexts

      An International Conference 


 Call for papers

    

    
    
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
body-based therapies 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).
