"Beyond Words: Gender and the Aesthetics of Communication"

This conference, presented by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, explores the aesthetics of communication, focusing particularly on how we communicate through the body—how we make ourselves look and smell, move and sound. Spotlighting diverse topics to probe how bodily communication engages the senses in ways that are often profoundly gendered.
