MoCS works with humanities and social science research. MOVEMENT is at the heart of the unit's understanding of human life as well as the CULTURAL and SOCIETAL relationships that shape and frame human development. MoCS conducts research on and with people. This research is strongly based on empirical approaches to the analysis of different levels and forms of movement.
- With a strong interdisciplinary profile MoCS contributes to phenomenological clarifications and understandings of the fundamental importance of movement to embodiment, consciousness and interpersonal relationships.
- With cultural theoretical approaches, MoCS involves in critical analysis of current movement cultures and health understandings. Some of these analyses include historical-sociological approaches.
The postdoc will be expected to participate in the project: “Being moved to move – clarifying affectivity dimensions in movement practices”. The project focuses on affectivity as an embodied aspect of our involvement in movement practices. Affectivity is understood as our embodied capacity to be affected and touched in a meaningful way. A capacity, which in accordance with our sensorimotor system, works in extended ways and can be environmentally supported. Concretely and in selected fields of practices, counting dance, yoga, boxing, parkour and eSports, MoCS investigate affective aspects that characterize the ways we are involved and caught up in the practice.
The successful candidate will be expected to have a PhD degree and to be able to present a research plan detailing ideas and plans for her/his future research work as part of the MoCS project (max 2 pages).
