Hi all,

The Macquarie University Research Centre for Agency, Values, and Ethics (CAVE) will host a one-day workshop on "Culture and Cognition" on Friday, 25 October 2019 at Dunmore Lang College Seminar Room, Macquarie University.

Building on the success of the first CAVE Culture and Cognition Workshop held in 2018<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/31OgCjZrzqHrqJ1XSW30Oi?domain=cultureandcognitionreadinggroup.wordpress.com>, this event is aimed at further fostering interdisciplinary dialogue between members of the cognitive sciences and humanities scholars who are interested in the topic of ‘Culture and Cognition’. The workshop will provide a forum for presentations from different disciplinary backgrounds, from departments across Macquarie University and the wider academic community, to showcase research that speaks to the connections between culture and cognition. This is further aimed at promoting the ongoing work of the CAVE Culture and Cognition Reading Group, and providing an opportunity for HDR students and ECRs working in this area to network with people from beyond their traditional disciplines.
