Abstract [en]

During the last decade academic interest in the senses has increased, indicating what David Howes refers to as a ‘sensual revolution’, a corrective to previous approaches that treat culture as readable text. Following this body of literature, this panel considers the idea of ‘places for learning’ from a perspective that acknowledges the mutlisensoriality of experience. This encompasses not only the directly and more obvious everyday sensoriality of tastes, smells and looks but also, the representations of the senses that saturate magazines, TV and the internet in our highly mediated C21 everyday lives. Studying the multi-sensory and aesthetic dimensions of peoples' learning practices, implies analyzing their actions in terms of experiences of perception – in ways that go beyond a conventional focus on visual perception. Recent ethnographic studies show the importance of sound, smell, taste and touch in how people experience, learn, construct their identities and remember. In this panel we develop these discussions further by exploring how the senses become implicated in contexts where people are engaged in processes of learning. Thus seeking to understand how sensory practices are both implicated in and created in relation to places for learning. In these three presentations we explore the relationship between personal multi-sensorial experiences of looking, tasting and hearing respectively and the collective practices that people engage in when visiting museums, eating and skating.
