SENSING THE CARIBBEAN: ART, CULTURE, HISTORY, AND THE SENSORY TURN
September 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
This interdisciplinary symposium will bring together scholars and artists to facilitate a conversation about different ways to sense and make sense of the multiplicity of Caribbean sensoria that have defined the region over the past three centuries. The symposium, hence, will foster dialogue on the ways in which sound, touch, smell, taste, and sight—and other sensorial categories outside of western conceptions of the sensorial like equilibrium or perceptions of the numinous world—have been experienced, created, and transmitted by the diverse groups of people who have inhabited the region over the past four centuries.
*All activities are open to the public
