Despite being a paradigmatically embodied activity dance has received relatively little attention in the blossoming field of 4E cognition. What can dance teach us about the mind? Is dance cognition somehow different than everyday cognitive activity? What are the connections between dance, knowing, and learning? What can 4E theorists learn from dance and vice versa?

This workshop aims to bring together cutting edge thinking in dance studies, the empirical sciences and philosophy of mind with the underlying assumption that combining knowledge from these fields is a fruitful enterprise that can help us understand topics such as expert performance, expert cognition, phenomenology, social cognition, learning, and more.   Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are now having the event as a series of zoom talks stretched across a week. These talks are open to the public, we simply ask that you send us a registration email. For a full schedule of speakers and zoom links check the schedule page on our website. We aim to have two talks per day so that no one gets zoom-exhaustion.
