LIVENESS SYMPOSIUM: Conceptualising, Practicing and Measuring Liveness Wed 24 Mar – Fri 26 Mar 2021

NEUROLIVE is an interdisciplinary research collaboration that brings artists, scientists and audiences together to study what makes live experiences special. This three-day online symposium launches NEUROLIVE by opening up different ways of conceptualizing, measuring and practicing liveness. An invited group of humanities scholars, cognitive scientists and performing artists will offer their individual perspectives on liveness, hosted by the interdisciplinary NEUROLIVE research team. Each day gathers together its contributors, hosts and attendees in an open discussion to bring different disciplinary perspectives into dialogue and help inform the research project’s five-year trajectory.

The symposium is free to attend. Please register here via Eventbrite to book.

We welcome you to join us for all or any part of the three-day programme that you choose. The event will be live captioned. All timings given in the schedule are GMT.
