03.-05.6.2019: Symposium Body-Oriented Approaches in Peace Studies

Call for contributions for researchers, practitioners and teachers concerned with Peace and Conflict Studies who seek to systematically explore different body-oriented methods and their applicability.

- How can arts and body-oriented methods contribute to a comprehensive frame of teaching and learning?
- How can group dynamics and intra-group conflicts be made explicit and addressed through them?
- What are the corresponding didactical requirements?

This symposium organised by the Research Center for Peace and Conflict at the University of Innsbruck invites researchers, practitioners and teachers concerned with Peace and Conflict Studies who seek to systematically explore different body-oriented methods and their applicability.

Based on an elicitive approach, the format of the symposium consists of individual contributions in which the different methods can be practically experienced and jointly reflected by the participants. The individual contributions aim to ‚show’ (experience and live) how body-oriented approaches function, instead of ‚telling’ how they could work. Towards this purpose, the symposium is structured in three consecutive parts, addressing movement-, breath-, and voice-oriented methods respectively.

Registration and application:
For international participants there is a limited number of slots providing accommodation and board for free. For a limited number of national participants, full board is included.
We ask for registration until May 15th, including a proposal for a session of ca. one hour to be facilitated within the symposium.

This symposium is made possible thanks to the support of the Research Platform Cultural Conflicts/Cultural Encounters and the Research Center for Peace and Conflict InnPeace, at the University of Innsbruck.
