Sensory Experience Across the Disciplines: A Colloquium

Friday, Feb. 6, 2015: 8:45 am - 4:15 pm
Robert Bradley Reading Room, Scholars Commons in Strozier Library

The FSU Libraries and the Center for Humanities and Society invite you to join us for a cross-disciplinary dialogue on how we understand and represent spaces around us with different forms of sensory input and output.  Speakers will address ways that we approach, make sense of, and articulate sensory experience as psychological, cognitive, and socio-historical constructions drawing on neurobiological, emotional, and socio-cultural interpretation.  Through such practice, we define boundaries between mind and body, self and society, and idea and object in specific cultural and temporal contexts.
