What kind of knowledge do we access when we move, including when we dance? How do our movement practices affect our work as writers and researchers? In this roundtable discussion, an international group of scholars and choreographers reflect on the potential nature and value of knowledge that comes through the body, through movement. Exploring what it means to bring a somatic approach to their work, the panelists invite the audience to hone their awareness of physical sensations as well and to consider the role of the body in the experience of knowing.

Panelists:

Lynn Matluck Brooks, Ph.D., Arthur and Katherine Shadek Humanities Professor Emerita at Franklin & Marshall College (USA); Certified Movement Analyst (Laban-Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies)

Kiko Mora, Ph.D., Professor of Semiotics of Advertising and Culture Industries, the University of Alicante (Spain), dance historian, writer, singer
