CFP for MSA 16, Pittsburgh, November 2014
Movement, Transmission, Intercorporeality
This panel will consider how perceived boundaries between bodies, both
somatic and subjective, become blurred through movement-oriented
formal/textual/performance practices. The idea of movement as
communicable and connective also offers a way of thinking through
points of contact and flow among literary genres, performances, and
cultural texts. Papers might consider early-twentieth century
instances or representations of kinesthetic empathy, intercorporeality,
unique but shared phenomenological and haptic experiences, and muscle
memory in disciplinary and/or artistic training methods.
Interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome, and might draw
from fields such as dance and/or performance studies, queer theory,
film studies, psychoanalysis, history of science, urban planning, and
art history, among others.
Please send a 250-word abstract and a one-paragraph bio to Harmony
Jankowski at hjankows at indiana.edu by April 1st.
