Contemporary cultural imaginaries

publié le

We will focus on a new topic of reflexion : “Imaginaries of the body and the material in contemporary culture”

Recent epistemological investigations into the fabric of meaning in contemporary culture have quite logically led to a reassessment of the phenomenological legacy and what it has to say to us regarding experience and the senses, whether it be those of the reader, the spectator, or the engaged observer. We will thus focus on the turn to what might be defined as a form of neo-materialism, or experiential materialism. The work done by visual culture scholars lile Martine Beugnet or Vivian Sobchack, and philosophers and political science specialists like Brian Massumi or Jane Bennett will provide the theoretical foundations for our reading of the “corporeality” of aesthetic experience as well as the emergence of a “digital” empiricism.
