Talking about the future in the beforetimes

I am very lucky to have had two wonderful opportunities in February to present work in which I explore the implications of the enactive theory of linguistic bodies for the future(s) that our habitual interactions with technology, natural and material environments, and each other are bringing forward.

ELDM 2020 Dinner in Lyon

If you are interested in the intersections of languaging, embodied interactions, and humane/diversity computing, ELDM 2020 organizers and participants are working now on a call for papers for a related special issue.

Stay tuned for upcoming work on how enacting different futures is related to enacting hope in the present. Collective efforts at habit reforming is obviously key to finding new paths; what the linguistic bodies approach suggests is that our shared activity of utterance-reporting, and particularly interactive interruption of this activity, is a powerful way of practicing hope.
