In a hyperconnected world, where our social networks are quickly becoming replacements for the physical participation in our emotional communities, how do we navigate the often under-examined relationship between our emotions and our bodies?

We invite you to hear from five speakers who will share their insight and ideas from their expertise in a wide-range of disciplines, including emotions theory and creative performance, posthumanism and interfacing with death, cultural displacement and queer ecologies. The panel will draw from both their vast collective knowledge and interactions with cross-disciplinary fields to explore the [in]corporeality of emotions, and the implications of bodies as emotional conduits in a world that is swiftly moving towards a collective technological platform. 

This public event is part of the Limina 14th Annual Conference HUMANIFESTO: dissecting the human experience, being held at The University of Western Australia, on 19 July 2019. It is supported by Limina: A Journal of Historical and Cultural Studies, the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions and the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies.
