GALINDO, Dolores  and  MILIOLLI, Daniele. Choreo-cartography: bodies, dance, psychology research. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.3, pp.26-42. ISSN 2238-152X.

This text contributes to thought pertaining to research practices in Psychology by way of dance as a method in which the body of those who research becomes simultaneously researcher and researched, and which requires a type of enquiry that we call choreo-cartography. We take recourse in a choreo-cartographic writing practice at the cross-roads of reflections on contemporary dance, feminist epistemologies of science, technology and society (STS) studies and research on cartography. In dictating certain bodies and methods as unique paths for research, experimental practices in Psychology can be characterised as choreo-policial and can be subjected to questioning for disrupting the attunements of bodies, thus opening up modes of living whose tracings reveal themselves as choreo-mappable movements. We posit an expanded experimentation that revises the traditional notion of experimentation in Psychology, by emphasising practices of creation, of impermanence, and variation
