Sensing Senses: Interdisciplinary Studies in Sensory Perception (Feb. 17-19, 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 5, 2011 - 9:39pm
A Graduate Conference Hosted by German and Scandinavian Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst

Keynote Speaker: Florence Feiereisen (Middlebury College)

At the mention of senses, one thinks of five capabilities used to gather data about one's environment. This Aristotelian paradigm has dominated Western civilization long enough to establish itself as a truism among many scholars without, as anthropologist David Howe reminds us, "exploring how the senses interact with each other in different combinations and hierarchies." Recent research in the social sciences and humanities has revealed an increasingly rhizomatic view of sensual worlds, in that the synaesthetic experience has become the norm: colors in film recall tastes, music conveys a sense of acceleration, the eye is fooled into feeling spaces, and so forth.
