Cognitive Futures in the Arts and Humanities is an international, interdisciplinary research network. It was originally supported by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), 2012-14, and continues to bring together researchers at all career stages from fields such as literary studies, narrative theory, poetics, linguistics, philosophy of mind, phenomenology, history, the history of art, film, performing arts and theatre studies, and beyond, whose work relates to, informs, or is informed by aspects of the cognitive sciences broadly conceived. To date, there have been major international conferences at the universities of Bangor, Durham, Oxford, Helsinki, and Stony Brook, NY.

If you are interested in joining the network, contact Dr Peter Garratt (Durham University).
