Verónica Cohen
Verónica Cohen holds a PhD in History and Theory of Arts from the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters, University of Buenos Aires and the Centre of Contemporary Arts, University of Lille. Her research is interdisciplinary, combining elements of phenomenology, dance studies, and body studies. As an artist, her work is influenced by buto dance training. During her visiting fellowship at University of Southern Denmark, she developed a project on the role of verbal expression in dance. By considering verbal expression as integral to the development of dance practices as dynamic processes, the project will help to answer two associated questions: How is verbal expression embodied? And how are dance practices shared among practitioners and outsiders? The answers to these questions will be relevant not only for dance practices, but also for sports, yoga and martial arts.

Peter Stilwell is a Canadian Postdoctoral Researcher at McGill University in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences - School of Physical and Occupational Therapy. Most of his research is theoretical and qualitative on the topics of pain and suffering. Recently, he developed phenomenological interests, including how one’s sense of self alters when in pain. He found the visiting fellowship at the University of Southern Denmark to be an excellent opportunity to advance his training in applied phenomenology, learn from leading experts in this area, and develop new collaborations and ideas for future research using phenomenological concepts.

Lillian Wilde is currently a research assistant at the International University of Applied Sciences and a visiting researcher at Macquarie University, Sydney. She is working on the phenomenology of post-traumatic experience, with a focus on intersubjectivity, alienation, empathy, and belonging. During her time as a junior fellow at the University of Southern Denmark, she developed a project on intercorporeality in the aftermath of trauma, which aims to give a nuanced and integrative account of the relational aspects of embodied experience in the aftermath of trauma. She is interested in the effects that collective embodied interventions (such as dance) may have on the wellbeing of trauma survivors.
