The Rhythm Of Life is a powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet
Rhythm in your bedroom
Rhythm in the street
Yes, The Rhythm Of Life is a powerful beat!
– Cy Coleman & Dorothy Fields, (1966) ‘The Rhythm of Life’. Sweet Charity [Musical] New York.

Rhythm is beginning to emerge as a research paradigm: as a pathway to not only study but to actively engage with social, economic, cultural, medical and environmental phenomena (c.f. Sefkatli and Nevejan, 2020).

Rhythm asks us to listen and explore the incremental tuning process of learning to move-with (potentially non-human) others. Collective compositions are inherently flexible, capable of holding combinations of multiple, even contrasting, rhythms simultaneously; it is within these compositions that it is possible to hear both similarities and differences; conflicts and consensus. If we can understand rhythms, we can make choices about mutual co-adaptation – without the need for complete control of all the variables. In healthy social relationships, this flexibility allows us to retain a sense of ourselves (identity) and our priorities (agency) whilst also being part of a collective; key research has shown that rhythmic engagement forms the basis of social cohesion, trust, and survival (c.f. Foubert, Gill and Backer 2022). Rhythm doesn’t just keep us safe, it enables empathy through intersubjectivity (Rabinowitch, 2017), and facilitates creativity.

The implications are significant as we face the ‘wicked problems’ of our time: from co-adaptation strategies to manage the ecological breakdown of our planet, to fostering cohesive communities that support us to live healthier, happier lives for longer; to defining new insights to address chronic illnesses and cellular processes. These challenges require more-than-human, intercultural and trans-disciplinary creativity; rhythm offers the potential for a horizontal, communicable and collaborative paradigm to understand patterns of interconnection. If we can (re-)learn how to embrace The Rhythm Of Life, perhaps we can find new ways to live ‘in-tune’ with ourselves, our societies, and life of/on our planet Earth.

Programme overview

Everywhere there is interaction between a place, a time and an expenditure of energy, there is rhythm.
– Henri Lefebvre, (2013 [1992]); p. 25.

Ask the best orators, negotiators and teachers and they will tell you that communication is not just a didactic transmission of language, but an engagement with your audience that shapes not only what you say, but how and when. We believe that rhythm represents an epistemological ‘turn’ that moves from investigating what we know, beyond interrogating how we know it, to understanding that ‘knowing when’ is just as important (Gill, 2015): time is part of knowledge. Engaging with rhythm (as a form of knowledge) allows us to move beyond traditional, exclusive epistemologies; to instead study processes in time and understand how different elements interact, co-exist and co-adapt.

This innovative two-day symposium explores rhythm as a paradigm for transdisciplinary learning and connection; as a common coordinate to enable meaningful communication between disciplines, and beyond the bounds of academia.  There is scope for significant creative interactions between the physical and social sciences as we move to understand the co-emergent forces which shape us, our societies and our world.

The programme will explore:

  • What engaging with rhythm means in different environmental, disciplinary and cultural contexts, and across multiple scales.
  • How rhythm might aid transdisciplinary communication – as a common metaphor or mechanism for engaging with change.
  • How rhythm might inform new methodologies for agency through design.

The symposium will be hybrid in format, with performances and presentations from a range of disciplines and creative practices.

If you have specific accessibility needs for this event please get in touch. We will do our best to accommodate any requests.

Panel 1: More-than-Human Rhythms  | Hybrid


  • Carolyn Smith (University of Cambridge, Dept of Geography)
  • Siddharth Unnithan Kumar (University of Exeter, Ecology and Conservation)
  • Liz Pavey (Northumbria University, Department of Arts)

If rhythm is the needle that stitches time and space together, and we understand worlds as co-constructed socio-natures, then rhythm is the ‘science of becoming’ by which these worlds are co-produced in and through time.  Our panellists, spanning geography, mathematics and the arts, understand rhythm as a framework to understand complex processes as ‘ensembles of co-emergent patterns, and use this common coordinate to unpick the relationships between the human and more-than-human that shape our interactions with and understandings of the world.

12:30 - 13:30


13:30 - 14:00 

Panel 2: Rhythm in Theory  |  Hybrid


  • Conor Heaney (University of Kent, Kent Law School)
  • Victoria Gross (University of Oxford, Philosophical Theology)

The panel brings together an overview of rhythm and time, explaining and extending Lefebvre’s theoretical contributions, and bringing them into conversation with contemporary debates.  Our speakers will also engage with the relationships between time, memory; the subjective, objective and intra-subjective, providing a firm theoretical foundation for subsequent conversations during the symposium.  There will be time for discussion, a Q&A session, and the talks will be pitched for a transdisciplinary audience without prior engagement with rhythm as an academic concept.

14:00 - 15:00 

Panel 3: Urban Rhythms  | Hybrid


  • Pinar Sefkatli (University of Amsterdam, Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences)
  • Sara Wookey (Dancer & Researcher, University of Cambridge)
  • Carlo F. dall’Omo (Architect and Urban Planner, Università Iuav di Venezia)
  • Robin A Chang (RWTH Aachen University, Planning Theory and Urban Development)

The panel unpicks the complexity of cities and space-based experiences through engagement with rhythm.  Cities and (urban) spaces are shaped and influenced by many rhythms, from cosmic to mechanic, bodies to mobility, culture to infrastructure. Thanks to this, urban rhythms invite researchers and practitioners to think at various scales, social domains, and built structures.  Our panellists will draw from a variety of disciplinary and theoretical sources – encompassing not only Lefebvre, but also ranging from Massey to Soja – to expand the theoretical and methodological toolkits to understand the multi-layered, dynamic, and transformative aspects of cities and their various physical and socio-spatial contexts.

15:00 - 15:30

Introduction  |  Hybrid

Satinder Gill (University of Cambridge, Centre for Music and Science)

10:30 - 11:25 

Panel 4: Rhythm as communication  |  Hybrid


  • Helen Magowan (University of Cambridge, Asian and Middle Eastern Studies)
  • Welmoet Wartena (Designer, Researcher and Educator)
  • Jenni Rikka Ahokas (University of Jyväskylä, Dept of Music, Arts and Cultural Studies)
  • Uma Ananda Dagnino Gonzalez (Lecturer, Researcher and Artist)

Rhythm is the basis of communication: whether through modulated sound (as in language or music) or tacit communication through movement and body language.  Our panellists will explore both embodied and abstracted rhythms as auditory, visual and embodied communication.

11:25 - 11:40


11:40 – 13:05

Panel 5: Making Rhythms Visible  |  Hybrid


  • Bhumika Billa (University of Cambridge, Faculty of Law)
  • Nicola Camatti (Ca’Foscari Università di Venezia, Dept of Economics)
  • Ekaterina Letunovskaia (Co-founder and Vice-President of Habidatum)
  • Véronique Chance (Anglia Ruskin University, Fine Art Research Unit)
  • Kathryn Hughes (University of the West of England, Faculty of Arts)
  • Férdia Stone-Davis (University of Cambridge, Faculty of Divinity)
  • Charissa Granger (University of the West Indies, Cultural Studies)

We live in a society which struggles to value that which cannot be quantified or measured, and this panel investigates the ways in which technologies can both assist and impede understanding rhythms at various scales.  Technology may help us to capture and communicate rhythmic phenomena, but it equally offers an inevitably partial view of entangled processes.  Our five panelists will explore these complexities and contradictions at the scale of the individual (body) and the collective (city/society) scale, offering insights from diverse disciplinary backgrounds that encompass the arts, applied economics, law and justice.

13:05 - 14:00


Venue: Old Library, Darwin College

14:20 - 14:40 

Rhythmic Complexity with Sirishkumar Manji

14:40 - 15:45 

Rhythm and the Collective Workshop (Part 2)

  • Daniela Sclavo (University of Cambridge, Dept of History and Philosophy of Science)
  • Férdia Stone-Davis (University of Cambridge, Faculty of Divinity)
  • Rahil Roodsaz (University of Amsterdam, Social and Behavioural Sciences)
This workshop will examine food as a vehicle for community building and action. Each community has its own rhythmic cycles and temporal relations.  Rhythms then, shape how people interact, how they relate, the ways in which knowledge is created and transmitted. More so, they define what crops are cultivated and when, the embodied techniques and timings in which ingredients are prepared, and what flavours accompany everyday lives, heritages, and territories. In this participatory encounter, we will create “memory recipes or maps” to engage with our bodies, feelings, and histories. In doing so, we will focus on the collective rhythms that thread in the process and reflect on the act of cooking and sharing living knowledge through food as a vehicle for community building and action.
15:45 – 16:30
