Bio Note: Fred Cummins conducts interdisciplinary research into the business of joint (unison) speaking, as found in practices of protest and prayer. This topic raises issues of collective intentionality that seem to be best addressed within an enactive framework. It also spotlights such rewarding topics as rhythm, speech-gesture and speech-music relations, synchronized action, and the aesthetics of ritual practices. He works at University College Dublin, where he co-directs a postgraduate cognitive science programme.
