Dance and Somatic Practices Conference 2017: Moving the Sensate: Questions of Affect and Embodiment for the 21st Cent
Friday 7th – Sunday 9th July 2017
The fourth international Dance and Somatic Practices Conference, invites somatic practitioners, dance artists and scholars from a range of subject domains to continue, extend and debate investigations in the field of somatic informed dance practices.
Acknowledging the post-capitalist sensibility of the 21st century, the 2017 conference considers the ways in which somatic informed dance does and might contribute to understandings of affect and embodiment. Foregrounding the sensate we invite submissions that explore the way in which somatic informed dance theories, questions and enables new thinking in the areas of:
1 Conceptions of the Post-human and the Dancing Body
2 Transgender identities, and notions of Difference
3 Dance as the radical, and site for political activism in a Post-Capitalist society
4 Responses to the Non-human Turn, New Materialism,
5 Critiques of Anthropocentricism and Inter-species performance,
6 Mediated bodies and performance, in the era of big data, smart cities and technology advances
The conference seeks to offer a space for discussion, engagement, debate and experimentation and invites proposals in a range of modes and formats including but not limited to: papers, workshops, lecture demonstrations, round tables, working parties, provocations, curated panels and performative interventions.
Contributors will have the opportunity to submit academic papers and other textual contributions for consideration for a special issue of the Journal of Dance and Somatic Practices, Intellect Publishers.
