Abstract

Starting from phenomenology's notion of orientation towards and involvement with the other and the surrounding environment the paper want to pursue a development from the meeting and opening up to the universalized other of phenomenology towards a focus on encounters with particular others. It is a matter of how bodies inhabit space through shared orientations and how bodies 'in touch' embody proximity or distance. The paper has a double entrance.
1.      On embodied constitution of otherness - about how affective relations such as practical Orientalism (and practical occidentalism), abjection or fascination are shaped between bodies, both reflecting and shaping familiarity or otherness.
2.      On experiencing otherness - about being the object of a hostile gaze, involving double consciousness, disorientation and the feeling of being bodies out-of-place
Keywords in the paper will be embodied encounters, practice, orientation, proximity-distance, emotion.
