I am the organizer of the Workshop on Embodied Cognition and Dance. This interdisciplinary event is now in its third year, and I aim to make the event annual.
With the advent of the 4E cognition research paradigm, cognitive science has seen a renewed interest in dance. However, much of the new cognitive science on dance does not interact with dance studies, the philosophy of dance, or aesthetics. This interdisciplinary conference brings together cognitive science, philosophy of dance, dance studies, and aesthetics to break down methodological boundaries and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration. The conference series supports diverse scholars speaking from multiple disciplines and includes traditional academic talks, movement workshops, and performances.
