What is the ‘cognitive humanities’? In what ways is knowledge from the cognitive sciences changing approaches to language, literature, aesthetics, historiography and creative culture? How have practices in the arts and humanities influenced the cognitive sciences, and how might they do so in the future?
This first international conference to focus on the cognitive futures of the humanities explores these issues. The conference will last for three days, and be hosted at Bangor University, in North Wales. The conference is associated with an international research network on the ‘Cognitive Futures in the Humanities’, which is supported by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and awarded to Dr. Peter Garratt (Northumbria University), and Prof. Vyv Evans (Bangor University)
