Sensory Worlds: Environment, Value and the Multi-Sensory

7th-9th December, 2011; Edinburgh

„What contribution can sensorially-engaged Humanities make to environmental thinking and action?“
The conference „Sensory Worlds“ wants to examine the multi-sensory and will reflect upon the historical, contemporary and possible future relations between the senses (from balance to taste to the haptic and beyond). It aims to allow generously for both formal and informal discussions and dialogues. David Abram and Iain Borden will hold keynote presentations which are also open to the public.

Call for Papers: This call invites responses to the main theme, and asks that these are submitted to one of the following elements: Paper Sessions, Panel Sessions or Installations.
