Articulation/Experience/Embodiment launch event: Registration open
18 May 2023
Articulation / Experience / Embodiment
Our experiences of the world are always embodied. We cannot help but speak from bodies; our bodies speak to us, in ways we may not consciously understand; and they also often speak for us in uncontrollable ways.
As we articulate our embodied experiences, we bump against the understandings, experiences, and articulations of other-bodied people. The entanglements of articulation, experience, and embodiment mark every attempt to understand ourselves and every interaction with others.
The network will facilitate workshops, provocations, and dialogue to examine crucial questions around the relationship between experience and representation; different forms, means and contexts of articulating knowledge and health and illness; and the methods for narrativizing embodied experience that open out techniques and spaces for empathy, healing and change.
The launch event will take place at the University of Essex on 20 June. It’s free and open to all.
