Abstract
Dance is an inherently social art form in which at least one person moves while another person watches. The aesthetic appreciation of dance is linked to the expression of emotions and intentions through the human body, and it can be conceptualised as a form of nonverbal communication via observed movement. In a series of lab and live performance studies, I will explore the idea that dance aesthetics depend on the saliency of social signals that are conveyed through both the individual and the collective kinematics of movement, including the variability and predictability of movement acceleration and the synchrony among a group of dance performers. Movement is the common denominator of dancing, making music and acting. Understanding the aesthetics of individual and joint action may thus provide a conceptual framework for an empirical aesthetics of the live performing arts.

KI:s Kulturpris 2021 tilldelas Carol Tishelman och DöBra-projektet

Carol Tishelman och logotype till DöBra-projektet.

Professor Carol Tishelman vid institutionen för lärande, informatik, management och etik och hennes team har tilldelats utmärkelsen KI Kulturpris 2021 för forskningsprojektet DöBra.

Vinnaren utses av KI:s Kulturråd genom att en eller flera personer vid KI, vars värdefulla insatser främjat mötet mellan kultur och vetenskap, såväl inom kultursfären vid KI och/eller i dess samspel med samhället, inom utbildning och/eller forskning belönas med en utmärkelse.

Utmärkelsen, som utgörs av ett diplom, en litografi samt en terracotta-skulptur, överlämnas av rektor på Medicinska Föreningen under Kulturdagen, onsdagen den 10 november inför stor publik.

Rebecca Lagercrantz, konstnär och KI-anknuten barnläkare och docent Ulrik Kvist, ANOVA, fick hedersomnämnaden för sina konstnärliga och kulturella gärningar under många år i gränslandet Kultur och Vetenskap.

Motiveringen lyder

Professor Carol Tishelman och hennes team får KI:s kulturpris 2021 för sitt innovativa arbete med forskningsprogrammet DöBra. De har i sin forskning visat en enastående förmåga att kombinera konst och vetenskap för att väcka och undersöka frågor kring döende, död och sorg.

Carol Tishelman och hennes team har i partnerskap med individer – friska som sjuka, närstående, vårdpersonal, föreningar och andra samhällsgrupper och instanser och genom interdisciplinära samarbeten bedrivit deltagande forskning om hur kultur, miljö och samtal kan stödja människor att förbereda sig inför livets slut.

Stor vikt har lagts vid nyttiggörande och spridning av forskningsresultat, via utställningar och interaktiva events i samarbete med museer och intresseföreningar.

Gruppen DöBra tar emot KI:s kulturpris 2021.

Abstract

Expertise in the motor domain is something we recognize instantaneously in other people, whether a gymnast performing a double layout with a twist, a Super-G skier descending a steep course at 80 mph, or a dancer bounding into the air and effortlessly spinning 4 times before landing with aplomb. While we might be able to readily recognize expertise in others, the degree to which action experts can coordinate or move their bodies in profoundly different ways to non-experts raises intriguing questions for those interested in shared representations between the self and others in our social world. Namely, how does an observer’s ability to embody an action impact how she perceives that action, and how might perception change as further experience with the observed action is acquired? In this talk, I attempt to address these questions by considering empirical research that uses dance as a model system to explores the relationship between an actor and an observer’s motor abilities, and how expertise impacts this relationship.

Nick Lane Biography
Nick Lane is an evolutionary biochemist and writer in the Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment, University College London. He was awarded the inaugural Provost's Venture Research Prize for his research on evolutionary biochemistry and bioenergetics in 2009. His work focuses on the origin of life, and the origin and evolution of eukaryotes. He was a founding member of the UCL Consortium for Mitochondrial Research, and is leading the UCL Research Frontiers Origins of Life programme. He is the author of four critically acclaimed books on evolutionary biochemistry. Life Ascending won the 2010 Royal Society Prize for Science Books, while The Vital Question was praised by Bill Gates as 'an amazing inquiry into the origins of life'. His work has been recognized by the Biochemical Society Award in 2015 and the Royal Society Michael Faraday Prize in 2016.

Sui Huang, MD, PhD, obtained his doctorates in medicine and molecular biology at the University of Zurich in 1995 working on interferons.  After postdoctoral training in cancer biology, he became faculty at Harvard Medical School in Boston, where he studied cell fate decisions. At the University of Calgary he worked alongside Stuart Kauffman on gene regulatory networks and cancer differentiation therapy (=exiting the cancer attractor), before joining the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle in 2011. Sui Huang demonstrated that cell types are attractor states in high-dimensional gene expression space and uncovered that cell state instability precedes cell fate decisions. His current laboratory at ISB combines single-cell omics technologies and theory of non-linear dynamical systems to better the fundamental inevitability of tumor progression.

Abstract
Cancer appears to be universal in complex living organisms.  Therefore, it may be a necessary manifestation of their robustness – which is epitomized by regenerative capacity. In this talk I will review the theory of gene regulayory networks, concepts of the cell attractor, multistability, and the “rugged epigenetic landscape”, as well as the evolution of regeneration -- leading to stress-indcued stemness. From this follows that cytotoxic stress imparted by treatment itself will either kill the cancer cell or induce stemness, thereby planting the seed for recurrence.  Thus, tumors exhibit Nietzsche’s principle of “What does not kill me makes me stronger” – perhaps a manifestation of instability and (non-genetic) bifurcation dynamics. I will demonstrate the practical consequences for treatment (which is poised to “backfire”) – supported by the latest single-cell transcriptomics data.

Talare: Thomas Söderqvist, Köpenhamn Universitet
Host: Ingemar Ernberg

Content

Dagens föredragshållare är professor emeritus Thomas Söderqvist, Köpenhamns universitet. Han har en lång karriär som vetenskaps- och medicinhistoriker bakom sig och arbetar nu med självbiografin /memoaren som genre. Utöver att skriva sina egna memoarer är han intresserad i 'självbiografins poetik', dvs memoarskrivandets mål och mening i skärningsfältet mellan källor, självinsikt, bildning, historiesyn och estetik. I det här seminariet vill han tala om syftet med memoarskrivandet -- handlar det om att producera sitt ultima curriculum vitae (cv), att bidra till den medicinska nutidshistorien, eller om att avrunda sitt livs bildningsprojekt och förbereda det goda emerituslivet? Eller om något helt annat?
