From May 15 – 17th, 2023, I was an invited participant and presenter at Emory’s Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture, led by Dietrich Stout (Director) and Robert Liu (Associate Director). Titled, Mind in Movement: Prospects for the Study of Embodied Cognition, Learning, and Culture, the workshop brought together scholars in anthropology, engineering, robotics, psychology, and more to discuss embodiment and what it means for cognition. We discussed what embodiment means, whether it is a fact or feature of human cognition, and whether cultural effects are fundamental in its consideration. I presented my work, methods, and questions of embodiment as related to craft, culture, and design pedagogy.
