No doubt, sensory knowledge plays a role in expert practices of research. How is it, then, that information gained through the senses remains suspect? Join us as we discuss how to account for the role of sight and sound--but especially touch, taste and smell--in the practice of science.Panels, workshops and events on the body and its sensory faculties: sensing, breathing, contamination, cross-species communing, walking and more. For details, see hmc.edu/hixonforum.This conference is sponsored by the Hixon-Riggs Forum for Responsive Science and Engineering of Harvey Mudd College, The Claremont Colleges Science, Technology, and Society Program and the Rick and Susan Sontag Center for Collaborative Creativity (the Hive).
