The pleasure of music and dance in the brain – interdisciplinary conversations

29 Mars 2016 09:00 - 30 Mars 2016 18:00
Institut d’études avancées de Paris
Hôtel de Lauzun, 17 quai d’Anjou, 75004 Paris

This 2-day symposium will bring together researchers and practitioners with expertise in music, dance and the brain, in order to initiate an interdisciplinary conversation on the fundamental role of pleasure of music and dance in human life. The study of music and dance is well established within the social sciences and the humanities, and has started to become studied in neuroscience in recent years, but these different approaches are rarely brought together in a constructive conversation. The main aim is to explore different scholarly perspectives on the role of pleasure and emotions in music, dance and the brain by bringing together these scholarly perspectives with insights into the practice of dance and music.

The symposium will be framed around three interrelated themes :

1/ Music and dance across borders and time
2/ Dance and polyrhythmic music
3/ Music and dance as man’s medicine
