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 

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).

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.

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).
