Unit of study_

Embodiment - PRFM4117

Year - 2020

Ways of thinking about how you perceive and make sense of objects, time, place, space, yourselves and others, are pertinent to the study of all aspects of performance. Western thought has not always trusted either the body or experience as valid sources of knowledge about the world. In this unit of study you will explore how theories of embodiment affect research in/of performance and, as a result, question the continued prevalence of mind/body, theory/practice dichotomies.
