Embodied Knowledge: Sensory Studes in the 21st Century
Embodied Knowledge: Sensory Studies in the 21st Century, a Burdick-Vary Symposium sponsored by the Institute for Research in the Humanities (IRH) and organized by IRH Senior Fellow Henry John Drewal, features a series of tasty “sound bytes” -- short, pithy multi-media presentations by both UW-Madison and internationally-renowned scholars who are exploring the senses in trans-disciplinary research (anthropology, art, art history, visual & material culture, music, dance, performance theory, cognitive sciences, etc.) -- interspersed with a variety of “call and response” interactive sensory experiences involving both presenters and audience. Aaron Granat, Associate Lecturer and Video Producer at UW-Madison, filmed and edited the 50-minute video, which is available here.
