Classics and Cognitive Theory - 27-28/10/2016, New York (USA)

21.03.2016

 

 

The field of cognitive theory, also known as cognitive science, is an interdisciplinary area that examines the processes of the mind and draws from research in psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, linguistics, anthropology and cognitive archaeology.

In recent years, cognitive approaches to the humanities have started to proliferate with work on language, literature, performance, ritual and religion, perception, and emotions. We are now starting to see scholars working on different aspects of Greek and Roman antiquity engage with the cognitive sciences in a variety of forms. This conference seeks to bring together several of them to explore this rich and stimulating new direction for classics.
