The (Scientific) Mind in Performance and Culture: Symposium
Jan 22, 1 - 4 pm @ Centre for International Health, Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto Graduate Centre for Study of Drama, and UC. Hart House

We invite you to attend a symposium which will feature presentations, workshops and open discussions led by distinguished panelists each of whom are uniquely exploring the integration of mind, science and culture through performance. Attendees from a broad range of disciplines are encouraged to attend and contribute to as we consider its implications for both 'scientist and artist.'    RSVP to  ATTENDANCE IS FREE BUT SPACE IS LIMITED

Advances in the study of cognition have profoundly changed our understanding of how the mind works, carving a sophisticated new pathway into studies of philosophy, technology, and aesthetics. We invite you to join us as we consider how these advances, explored through performance, can impact issues of health and global citizenship. The study of consciousness is a rigorously interdisciplinary pursuit, embracing academic disciplines as diverse as cognitive linguistics, sensorimotor theories of perception, and artificial intelligence.
