20th Herbstakademie: „Synchronization in Embodied Interaction”,

which is in continuation of the series of Herbstakademie meetings dedicated to the topic of complex systems in psychology, social sciences and the humanities. The conference will take place (already) in spring next year (February 28 – March 2, 2019). It will be hosted by the University of Freiburg, Germany, and is supported by the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS)).

Information on this upcoming and on previous meetings of the Herbstakademie community is provided here: Click “20. Herbstakademie”, and you will find there links to REGISTRATION and paper submission information.

We will address theoretical and applied questions of synchrony in embodied social interaction: What is the role of the body in social interaction and mental processes? How can the phenomenon of interpersonal synchrony elucidate verbal and nonverbal communication? How can psychotherapists, teachers and counsellors incorporate principles of embodiment into their work? What role does synchronization play in the experience and appreciation of art, dance and music? How do verbal and bodily resources interact in the process of collaborative meaning making in talk-in-interaction? How do synchronization phenomena contribute to the making and negotiation of common ground and/or the display of affect in real-time dyadic interactions?

With kind regards

Wolfgang Tschacher, Stefan Pfänder, and Carl Eduard Scheidt
