Columbus, Body Writing and Dance

Join us for our next event on April 15, 2013, at 2:30 pm in room 165 Thompson Library. OSU professors Robert Ladislas Derr (Art), Heather Inwood (East Asian Languages and Literatures), and Norah Zuniga-Shaw (Dance) come together to consider how corporeal engagement inflects and is inflected by technology and arts practices. Derr stages both a corporeal and a historical encounter with Christopher Columbus, sensing his way through both past and present, Inwood analyses excretory excesses written into contemporary Chinese poetry, especially in the School of Rubbish and the School of Spam, and Zuniga-Shaw and her students offer perspectives on how technologically mediating physical practices such as dance opens up new questions around the body, movement, aesthetics, and decision-making.
