Panel 14 - Co-agitō ergo sum: Bodies in Rhythm and Rhythms of Embodiment

Convenor: César Enrique Giraldo Herrera (Leibniz-ZMT Centre for Marine Tropical Research)

Short abstract: This panel explores the whirling dynamics of embodiment and its cinematics. How rhythm, with its physiology, underlays and mediates action and perception, collective experience, shaping organisms and identities, constituting or dowsing personhoods, affording means of evoking and empathizing.
