Elbows! Smiles and Laughter - Body Language examined


Body Language: Past, Present, Future and the Art of Gesture ...

While gestures tend to be polysemous, the science of kinesics, proxemic behaviour and haptics can offer a key to some of the fundamental values and assumptions behind the body language of any society.

Through an examination of both present and medieval body language, gesture and non-verbal leakage, the science of conversing agreeably and the complications of modern social media life can be explored.

You will consider different corporeal connotations such as walking, standing, sitting, sneezing, smelling, strutting and the strategic use of the Renaissance elbow. You will also use your new and collective knowledge to imagine and predict likely future body-language developments and how to be powerful in social encounters.
