Dwelling-tellings…Down Under

16. oktober 2012 § Skriv en kommentar

Soon heading for Australia…I’ll be looking out for deadly spiders. And hoping for some nerdy times while discussing responses to trauma etc. at Narrative Practices Adelaide. Those are some of the questions I’ll bear in mind…

What are the effects of handcraft – such as knitting, gardening, playing instruments – on our ability to do some dwelling-telling and to forget ourselves all the while?

What might cognitive neuroscience have to say on the connections between tellings, dwellings, tools and movement?

What does the Social look like in this experiment of bringing (repetitive) movements in the therapeutical limelight?

What might a distinction between different silences enable us to do, say and see – that of silence (lack of voice) and silence (void)?

What happens with concerns on context, power and positioning when bringing Philosophers of Joy, Gilles Deleuze and Friedrich Nietzsche, to the narrative fête?

If Freud used a topological Mirror to work on subjectivity, and if the Narrative field uses a grateful Witness, how might a conversational psychology “respond” to the present turning away from such practices of reflected subjectivity and the drive towards techniques of inner silence (eg. Mindfulness)?

Down Under, I’ll be thinking in terms of this idea of dwelling-telling (sorry, it’s terrible to pronounce!). It is associated with the lovely narrative idea of loitering and it suggests a rethinking of everyday social life that I believe the western societies are looking for. Longing for.
