In recent years a paradigm shift has been underway in the humanities and social
sciences. This shift has resulted in the declining influence of
'constructionism' where the body's meaningfulness is understood in terms of
social practices, and the rising influence of theories of embodiment that take
fuller account of the body's materiality and its physical situatedness. This
two-day symposium will explore how the critical turn to embodiment has impacted
our understanding of technology, communication and community.
