You are cordially invited to access the online live feed of the 10th Annual Graduate Student Conference on Friday April 28th, 2017, held at the School of Public Health Building on the University of Maryland College Park campus (see below for online access details).
This one-day conference consists of a series of student presentations commenced with a keynote by Dr. Michael Friedman, PCS alumnus and current Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at UMD and a very special PCS address by Dr. Lucia Trimbur, Associate Professor of Sociology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the City University of New York graduate center.
This year, the conference is organized around the theme, “Redefining the Body in Physical Culture.” In the ten years since the conference’s inception at the University of Maryland, the project of Physical Cultural Studies has expanded its scope of research beyond the physical corpus. Increasingly, researchers have shifted their focus to the spaces/places that bodies inhabit, the impact of technologies on health and body, the effects of non-human agents in physical culture, as well as other topics that extend agency to non-humans. This work, as well as calls from within PCS to move beyond anthropocentrism, have led to questions of what the “physical” is in the critical study of physical culture.
