Thinking Body, Moving Mind: Repatterning the Scholar’s Bodymind, 2009-2010
This collaborative uses the tools of Body Mind Centering to create knowledge and experience within the body. While the biological sciences can evaluate the physical and chemical processes and ramifications of life, work, illness, and movement, they do little to explain how individuals experience their own bodies and the changes that take place within them. In workshops and movement sessions, this project looks to body subjectivity and intersubjectivity and their impact on scholarship and expectations about knowledge.
This group follows the Body & Knowing research award project, Embodied Methodologies. Participants blog about their thoughts and experiences.
Conveners: Craig Hassel (Food Science and Nutrition, Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences) and Margaret Adamek (Local Foods, Sustainability and Wellness, Continuing Education)
