    How does one become more aware of oneself as a mover, doer, learner, knower? Does one learn to do things with language – to speak, to read, to write, even to think – in the same ways as one learns to move? This studio-seminar course engages with these sorts of questions through experiences with and responses to basic awareness-through-movement lessons adapted from the Feldenkrais Method®, through academic readings about embodiment, and through writing and discussion of material (which may include attendance at a campus event).

    Open to upper-division students from any major. No formal movement training required, as the class is really about awareness. Wear clothes that you are comfortable moving in on Thursdays; mats provided. This class counts as either the “History and Theory” and “Image & Narrative” concentrations in Rhetoric. Some spaces reserved for TDPS majors/minors. Must attend first 2 weeks to stay enrolled.
