Cognitive Futures in the Humanities:
A One-Day Symposium funded by the AHRC
Saturday 28 April 2012
Sutherland Building (Great Hall)
Northumbria University, Newcastle
How have the arts and humanities responded to 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?
