Seminar Series Announcement: “Embodied methods: Art and social science in dialogue” (Oxford; 10, 14, and 17 May 2018)

A collaboration between the Unit for Biocultural Variation and Obesity and the Body and Being Network, this series will take an interdisciplinary approach to embodied methodologies, interrogating the often-hidden corporeality that underpins artistic and academic work. Bringing together artists and social scientists, the series will focus on the ways in which bodies-as-methodologies are both transformative of, and transformed by, the environments, socialities, and materialities they explore.
