About the workshop

In line with our collective interests, we will focus on the case of spontaneous rhythmic behaviors in the context of engaging with designed activities bearing potential mathematical meanings. The workshop will gather a group of international experts with complementary theoretical and methodological expertise vital to modeling the emergence of rhythmicality as a resource for enacting social practice. We envision learning from each other in an informal, dialogical, and exploratory setting.
