21- 23 November 2012, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
In the recent decades the insight that we socially engage in communication as whole human beings has overruled the Cartesian tradition of researching humans as compartmentalised entities. New activities in multidisciplinary research have been launched across the faculties. The purpose of the present conference is to provide a proper forum for researchers to discuss and make explicit their respective theoretical assumptions and disciplinary foundations in relation to embodied human communication. A prerequisite for everybody is the recognition of embodiment in all human interaction.
Keynote speakers: Stephen J. Cowley (University of Hertfordshire), Susan Goldin-Meadow (University of Chicago), Asli Özyurek (Radboud University, Nijmegen), Natalie Sebanz (Central European University, Budapest), Colwyn Trevarthen (University of Edinburgh). The conference will be chaired by Hanne Ruus (University of Copenhagen).
The programme committee now invites the submission of abstracts for papers. Deadline: 22 August 2012. For further details and application, you are referred to the conference webpage: http://embodiedfoundation.ku.dk/sudmission_of_abstracts/
