Conference: Transforming Spirit Bodies
Changing Materialities and Embodied Dependencies

September 29-30, 2022

Register by: September 15, 2022

Organized by Research Group “Marking Power: Embodied Dependencies, Haptic Regimes and Body Modification” (Sinah Kloß, Lena Muders, Taynã Tagliati), Bonn Center for Dependency and Slavery Studies (BCDSS), and kindly supported by Fritz Thyssen Stiftung

Venue: Bonner Universitätsforum, Heussallee 18-24, 53113 Bonn, Germany

The interdisciplinary conference focuses on the bodies and embodiments of spirits, their (im-)materialities, and the bodily transformations, which they may be subject to in different socio-cultural contexts. Contributions analyze the embodied experiences of asymmetrical dependencies among humans and spirits and how the sensory experiences of interdependence are negotiated in their interactions. They examine and compare the particular (historical) moments and conditions under which these bodily transformations occur and how they can influence understandings of human–nonhuman interdependence.
