CONFERENCE: Qualia - Thinking the Senses
The aim of this interdisciplinary conference, and the research project associated with it, was to explore the ways in which different disciplines theorise the qualitative dimension of experience and integrate the sensual into their working-models of a range of phenomena. It explored sensory perception in different times and places, in its multiple relations to the literary and the artistic as well as to the political and social. It created a forum for an exchange of points of view between researchers in the fields of literary theory, history, art history, philosophy, anthropology, psychoanalysis, geography, cognitive science and other areas still. It also involved practising artists and writers.
