Embodiment Cluster – Update 2018

In anticipation of the next South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership Cohort Day on 12 November, we at the Embodiment Cluster would like to say a big hello and welcome to the brilliant researchers, both new and not-quite-so-new (!), who make up our vibrant academic community.

The Embodiment Cluster is, at its core, a forum for DTP students to discuss the body and embodiment in a friendly, dynamic, and interdisciplinary environment. Previously, the Cluster has played a major part in the organisation of Fun Palaces with the TRAM (Translation, Representation, Adaptation and Mobility) Cluster, which you can read about on this blog. For the coming year, we are aiming to continue our work by:

  • Holding a Work-in-Progress (WiP) Conference for students interested in any aspect of embodiment in December 2018 – keep your eyes peeled for the forthcoming Call for Papers!
  • Organising museum visits across the South West and beyond
  • Running reading groups
  • Offering students the chance to share their research on this blog

If you’re a SWW DTP student and would like to get involved with any of this, please do follow us on Twitter (@EmbodimentDTP), join our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/142297049459560/), or email Alex Osborne (ao16170@bristol.ac.uk) to find out more – we’d love to hear from you!
