Cognitive Futures in the Humanities Symposium
Saturday 28 April 2012, Sutherland Building (Great Hall)
What have the arts and humanities learned from the cognitive science revolution? How far have we evolved new knowledge and models in areas such as literary, aesthetic and historical analysis in connection with cognitive paradigms? What future possibilities lie open for the analysis of culture and cultural objects using concepts from cognitive science?
This one-day symposium, which launches a new international and interdisciplinary network funded by the AHRC, will address these questions and the current state of an emerging scholarly field. Featuring world-leading academics from philosophy, literary studies, cognitive science and linguistics, it will interest researchers working between science and culture, on the mind and feeling, and/or in cultural theory more broadly. All are welcome.
There will be panels on: mind, body and technology; empirical aesthetics; language, culture and complexity; and beyond narratology. The day will conclude with a roundtable discussion.
