First International Conference on Embodied Education

Copenhagen, 15 - 17 May 2024

Official Website

The 1st International Conference on Embodied Education is aimed at conveying a community of people interested in embodied education and the related topics, like enaction, emotion, extended mind, embedded cognition, sports, wellbeing, and the performative arts (such as music, dance and drama). The goal is to bring together artists, scholars, practitioners, teachers and students to reflect on themes like the mind-body nexus, lived body, agency, consciousness, intercorporeality, social mind, and similar topics. With this conference we want to cut the first turf toward an international movement of people dedicated to this topic.
