Senses of Place – registration open

Senses of Place Conference/Workshop

22-23 February 2018, University of Roehampton

Registration open until 17.00 on 15 February 2018

The aim of this two day workshop is to encourage debate as to how more robust and theoretically informed sensory methodologies and approaches may be developed within studies of antiquity. Senses of Place invites discussion of how the sensing/sensate body locates itself in a specific environment, and at the same time reconfigures that environment from the stimuli it comprises. We are interested in what happens cognitively, affectively, and/or interpretively at this interface: how and why certain places provoke certain responses, and how such responses might be (or have been) recognised, modified, or generated.

How and why did certain places, either real or imagined, create particular sensory responses?

How do the senses produce an embodied sense of place?
