ETHNOGRAPHY LAB WORKSHOP SERIES 2018: EXPERIMENTS AT THE EDGE
PROPRIOCEPTION II: BODIES IN SPACE*
Monday, February 26, 17:00 – 19:00 Concordia University EV Building, Room 10.625 (Ethnography Lab) Facilitated by Maya Hey, Communications, Concordia University
Proprioception: the physiological phenomenon of the sense of self in space. Proprioception is knowing and sensing one’s orientation. It is knowing where the self ends and the rest begins. It is a physical and material mode of attention often overlooked in the text-based world of academia.
This workshop attunes participants to this sense of self and other – and its implications for conducting interpersonal research – through movement exercises followed by discussion and writing activity. The workshop space is wheelchair-accessible, and activities are tailored to participants’ mobilities. Please direct accessibility questions and requests to Alix Johnson: email@example.com.
*This workshop is back by popular demand – participants in the 2017 workshop, as well as new participants, are welcome to attend!
