Bowland North, Seminar Room 20

This session will offer a forum to have a longer and more open discussion about theoretical frameworks relating to embodiment and their application to Fantastika texts. The workshop will include an opening round-table of invited speakers including Sherryl Vint, Chloé Germaine Buckley and Liz Oakley-Brown who will introduce their approach to embodiment theory and its relation to their research; a break-out small group discussion exercise where participants can reflect on their interaction with theory; and finally a full-group plenary to reflect upon Fantatika’s interaction with embodiment theoretical frameworks.
