Embodied Encounters and the Senses in Modern Languages

Embodied Encounters and the Senses in Modern Languages
25 May 2018, 2.00pm - 5.30pm
Gordon Room, G34, Ground Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

This half-day workshop will explore research across languages as an embodied, sensory process. Scholars working with film, literature and participatory methods will focus particularly on questions of positionality and the role the senses play in the experience of the languages, cultures and objects we research. We will explore the opportunities and challenges of carrying out projects and sharing findings with an ethnographically-informed attention to the self and the senses.
