Hello Philosophers of Science In Practice -

This week, in The Histories-of-the-Body Working Group we consider:

*The body is a site of knowledge production*: Pamela Smith’s chapter
explores artisanal practice of "imitation as a learned bodily habit that
became a cognitive practice and, finally, led to knowledge and the
production of effects."

We will explore: How artisanal artifacts and writings offer avenues for
study of knowledge production practices mediated by the artisan’s body?

(Please find the readings on your website link below. )

January 20th - *Bodily Processes in Artisanal Epistemology*
(All of our meetings take place on Zoom. 6pm CET/ 5pm GMT / 12-noon EST /
9am PST


Please write to me directly if you have questions and want to be added to
our mailing list.

> Hello Philosophers of Science In Practice -
> The "Histories of The Body Working Group" invites you to join our
> meetings:
> If your research takes The Body as a site of performative practice and of
> practical performances, and
> if your research program takes The Body as intersections of pluralist
> ontologies and epistemologies, and
> if your research agenda takes The Body as a venue of primary and social
> phenomena that persistently displaces and troubles our academic habits of
> ontologizing and epistemologizing, then
> Please consider exploring our working group described below.
> We hope to complicate and enrich the next decade of research agendas
> engaging The Body as a first principle and as a first site of engaging in
> human activities.
> Historians and Philosophers can be seen as practitioners of
> futures-making, and history-writing and philosophy-making can be
> experienced as practices of re-working the genealogies of our histories and
> conceptions to reclaim the possibilities that were somehow constrained out
> or excluded. Come and be pluralist with us. Come and add your pluralist
> practices of scholarship and research to our working group.
> Here are details of our 1st event:

> In this session we ask: “What is the role of the historian in shaping
