Event description

Description

The aim of this two day workshop is to encourage debate as to how more robust and theoretically informed sensory methodologies and approaches may be developed within studies of antiquity. Senses of Place invites discussion of how the sensing/sensate body locates itself in a specific environment, and at the same time reconfigures that environment from the stimuli it comprises. We are interested in what happens cognitively, affectively, and/or interpretively at this interface: how and why certain places provoke certain responses, and how such responses might be (or have been) recognised, modified, or generated.

How and why did certain places, either real or imagined, create particular sensory responses?

How do the senses produce an embodied sense of place?

Senses of Place is the second workshop organised by the informal network Sensory Studies in Antiquity (https://sensorystudiesinantiquity.com), which seeks to develop methods and approaches to Sensory Studies within Classical Studies and wider disciplines.
