Graduate Seminar
“Embodying the Senses in Art and Culture”
Dr. Constance Classen
Dr. David Howes
Constance Classen will present a brief talk on “Indigenous Aesthetics and the Senses”: What are some of the distinctive features of indigenous art forms? How are the senses engaged in indigenous aesthetics? What new forms of expression is this aesthetics taking today? How may such multimodal art be adequately showcased by museums? These and related questions will be explored within the context of the aesthetic traditions of the Andes, which are being given vibrant new forms of life by Andean artists and designers.
David Howes will give a brief overview of his chapter on “Embodiment and the Senses” forthcoming in the Handbook of Sound Studies edited by Michael Bull. Copies of the paper will be distributed in advance to confirmed participants.
