Movement in Space - Space in Movement

29 March 2022 to 1 April 2022

LYNX - Center for the interdisciplinary Analysis of Images Spring School 2022

IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca is launching a Spring School that aims at critically analysing the multifarious notion of movement, with a special focus on the Greek and Roman worlds.
Movement is a way to interact with the external world, independent from chronological and topographic boundaries. The physical placement of a body (both living and inanimate) in space and the mental, emotional and sensational feedback associated with movement are keys to human interaction with external reality. Still, the way humans shape, perceive and interpret the external world is deeply oriented by and depending on cultural, topographic and chronological factors. 

The Spring School aims to give a fresh approach on how movement can be analysed, reassessing its definition: movement as a foundational and perceptual mechanism. By providing such a definition it is possible to widening and incorporating a range of multidisciplinary topics and approaches. Starting from recent research on movement and space in the Greek and Roman worlds, the goal of the Spring School is to raise and answer interrogatives on how movement shapes and directs our knowledge and perception of the world.
