At this event on Monday 26 November, five Kent authors will offer brief reflections about the arguments and insights of their newly published books and discuss questions from an open audience.

The event aims to celebrate the contribution of CSHE, CER and the Visual and Sensory Research Cluster (SSPSSR) to emerging research across theory and practice.

One of the five authors is Dr Dawn Lyon, who will introduce her new book What is Rhythmanalysis?

In recent years, there has been growing interest in Henri Lefebvre's posthumously published volume, 'Rhythmanalysis'. For Lefebvre and subsequent scholars, rhythmanalysis is a research strategy which offers a means of thinking space and time together in the study of everyday life, and this remains its strength and appeal.

'What is Rhythmanalysis?' addresses the task of how to do rhythmanalysis. It discusses the history and development of rhythmanalysis from Lefebvre to the present day in a range of fields including cultural history and studies of place, mobility, work and nature. It considers how the body is directly deployed as a research tool in rhythmanalytical research as well as how audio-visual methods can get at rhythm beyond the capacity of the senses to perceive it. See Bloomsbury Academic for more information.

See the Centre for Ethnographic Research for details of the book launch.
