BodyWorks: A Conference on Corporeal Representation at the University of Northumbriabodyworks

Description
A one day conference with a keynote lecture by Professor Lisa Blackman. Aimed primarily at postgraduates (Masters, PhDs, early career Postdocs) but open to anyone who is interested in affect studies, feminist and queer theory, body studies and emotion studies.

Professor Lisa Blackman from Goldsmith’s University is one of the most prominent scholars in the fields of body studies, affect studies and post-humanism at the moment. Professor Blackman’s work intersects body studies with media and cultural theory. She has written extensively on subjectivity, affect, the body and embodiment, including her most recent monograph Immaterial Bodies: Affect, Embodiment, Mediation (2012).

BodyWorks takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to representations of bodies, embodiment and sensory experience across literature and culture. In doing so, we welcome responses from a range of disciplines, including cultural studies, literary studies, philosophy, arts, history, education, media, social sciences and medical humanities. Through this breadth of intellectual inquiry, the event aims to draw together a range of approaches and methodologies for exploring various facets of the contemporary shift towards studies of the body and emotions in the humanities.
