Professor Annemarie Mol gave one of the keynotes at this year’s Emotional Geographies conference entitled: ‘Feeling, wording, eating. On cultivating bodies’. I did not attend the conference so it is great to see a video made available, and so swiftly:
The talk offers an expansive understanding of embodied subjectivity, with the extension of the senses that are cultivated and extended through the various material, economic, medical practices. A complex entanglement of spatial configurations thus constitutes the embodied subject Mol offers. Her challenge to the audience is how one might formulate methods not only for studying but also engaging in ‘cultivation’.
I came to this video thanks to Rebecca Sandover.
