Argument

The conference „Move as a child: motion, enactivism and meta cognition is a scientific project initiated by Vytautas Magnus University to explore the „mobility turns” various extensions in cultural research. This online conference emphasizes mediation between the environment, bodies, and institutions to produce social, cultural, and material effects through the terms of enactivism and meta cognition. 

Scholars have set (John Flavell, 1985; John Dewey, 1939; Donald Winnicott 1960) out to rework the boundaries of, on the one hand, the cultural and the symbolical and, on the other hand, the material and the physical. How the knowledge is embodied through the movement and what could we learn from babes or children’s perspectives. We are interested, how cultural institutions creates a new sort of social situations for interaction - embodied, experiential and mundane learning expediencies (Sophie Marinopoulos 2009, 2019).

Every situation is located in space-time-socium context (Marton XXX), in the same manner as interaction. Interactivity is challenging notions of reason and cognition, perception and memory, emotions, and affections (Erving Goffman 1974). To move for us is to grow, to play, to do some exercises all this is an ongoing process that integrates sensory, cognitive, emotional, social, and affective elements. Audiences have become intrinsic part of art works, exhibitions and design processes altering existing narratives and allowing new ways to understand the environment (Schmitt, 2018, p. 93). Technological mediation of the relationship between social practice, cultural institutions and their audiences take a large place in our dally life. Play could be considered as a cultural technique (Anna Reading, 2022). But what happens if game structures are transposed to everyday life (Stanislas Dehaene, 2020) ?

This session wants to put the spotlight on the ethical dimensions and the mundane practices tied to movement – its meaning, function, implications, and limits in contemporary society. To understand meaning-making, identity, materiality, and practice in everyday life, it is of great importance to study the interaction, movement, and agency of human and non-human bodies (Sabaliauskas S., 2021). Whether the study concerns emotions in professional arenas, enactments of bodies in medical practice, or intimacy between bodies. The embodied and emplaced experiences and conceptualizations involved in processes of hierarchization/ differentiation/ othering as well as inclusion/dependency/ trust, are at stake. Intersectional approaches include spaces-specific and age experiences and embodiments. Within this theme, presenters will be exploring movement from children perspective.
