The Cognitive Futures in the Humanities conference series goes back to its inaugural conference 2013 in Bangor, Wales. After highly successful events at Durham, Oxford, Helsinki, Stony Brook, Canterbury and Mainz, the 2020 conference in this series will take place at Osnabrück University, Germany (15-17 May, 2020).
Like the first conference in Bangor, CFAH 8 provides a forum and interface for scholars from various humanities, the arts, and cognitive science. In resonance with research expertise at Osnabrück the particular focus of CFAH 8 will be situated cognition and multimodal communication. In particular, we would like to invite papers and posters that concentrate on tractable problems (and how these can be solved) or that present current and innovative methodologies. Nevertheless, this conference is in no way restricted to these aspects or fields of research and submissions from the whole range of approaches represented in the Cognitive Futures in the Arts and Humanities network are welcome, including empirical as well as theoretical approaches.
For the first time, this conference will be held in conjunction with a spring school on “Cognitive Science meets the humanities and arts: building the next generation” (11-13 May, 2020) and the International Conference on Multimodal Communication (ICMC, 8-10 May, 2020).
The conference runs from Friday, 15 May 9am to Sunday, 17 May ca. 2pm.
