Presentation

On the 6 and 7 June 2013, for the fifth consecutive year, Sapienza Università di Roma will be organising the International Conference “Dialogues between Theatre and Neuroscience”. This year, the interdisciplinary dimension of the event will be supported through a collaboration involving the Department of Art History and Performing Arts, the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology “V. Erspamer”, and the Faculty of Philosophy, Arts, Humanities and Oriental Studies of Sapienza Università di Roma. In the course of these five years the Conference has hosted more than sixty scholars hailing not only from the fields of theatre and cognitive neuroscience, but also from the fields of anthropology, psychology, physiology, history of art, musicology, philosophy, education and sport sciences.

The theme chosen for this year’s conference is the following: In what ways does interdisciplinary encounter change the disciplines involved? In what ways can the practices and studies of theatre change the research praxis of neuroscience? In what ways can the theories and paradigms of neuroscience modify the research praxis of theatre, in both its performative and academic cultures?

Submission guidelines

We therefore invite interested Ph.D. candidates and graduates, post-docs, researchers and professors to participate in the Conference by sending a presentation proposal.

Proposals may illustrate an example or a hypothesis of the way in which the circulation of knowledge and experience changes the research praxis of those involved. Case studies may refer to a contemporary experience or to the history of the disciplines in question. Priority will be given to the presentation of reflections and outcomes deriving from pragmatic, collaborative experiences or experimental paradigms. 

Each proposal has to include:

  • A title
  • 5 keywords
  • A presentation of the topic and of the research methodology (max. 400 words)
  • A short bibliography
  • A short biographical note of the proponent, stating research institution, personal course of studies and any publications.

In total proposals should not exceed 900 words.
