Summer school: Experimental Methods in the Study of Cognition and Culture

The interface between culture and cognition is a fast-developing research area attracting numerous scholars and scientists with different backgrounds. Neuroscientists, psychologists, sociologists, economists, anthropologists, and humanists of various sorts seek to find out how evolved cognitive capacities, cultural learning and social and institutional forms interact to constrain, or even produce, human behavior. Such interdisciplinary work not only calls for a high degree of translatability between terminologies found in each individual discipline. It further calls for knowledge about, and experience with, different methodologies. This course is directed to students of human behavior who have a background in social sciences or the humanities and an interest in using experimental methods in investigating their topic. Course offered by Department of Culture and Society.
