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.
