Movement as a corporeal narrative concerns itself with all physical movement which occurs on the site of the human body (at its most reduced: muscle-fibres contracting/relaxing and secreting from glands). We can theorise these movements into two categories:
- ‘Voluntary’: intentional movements thought and articulated. Characterised by awareness, deliberation, and conscious control.
- ‘Involuntary’: as well as relating to our autonomic nervous systems, this also includes our habitual daily movement patterns (sitting, walking, standing, navigating our environment).
