Welcome to the home of Rock/Body: Performative Interfaces between the Geologic and the Body, an AHRC-funded research network led by Dr João Florêncio (University of Exeter) and Professor Nigel Clark (Lancaster University), in partnership with the British Geological Survey.

Rock/Body brings together researchers from the humanities, social sciences, health and earth sciences alongside artists to investigate the human body as a site that exists in continuity with – rather than cut away from – the geologic. It aims to move beyond the nature/culture divide geologically, by taking performing human bodies as both expressions of geological matter and forces, and prime sites of exposure and response to changes in the dynamics of earth systems.
