Media Philosophy, Cognitive Science, and the Future of the Humanities

Taking The Assemblage Brain to China!
International Summit Conference: Media Philosophy, Cognitive Science, and the Future of the Humanities
Place: Beijing Normal University, Beijing, China
Time: Oct. 27 to 28, 2018
Since 2013, Beijing Normal University hosts an international conference addressing a theme central to humanistic inquiry.  Interdisciplinary in scope, method, and perspective, the conference seeks to provide a forum for exchanging ideas in the Humanities that will be of significance and interest to academic communities in both China and beyond.  Toward that end in keeping with its established practice, this year’s conference brings together sixteen scholars whose work, ranging from media studies, philosophy, cognitive science, and literary and critical theories, promises to help expand the tradition this conference has established.  The possible topics to be explored include: media, technologies and epistemics, media and philosophers, neuroscience, humanism, non-humanism, and anti-humanism, elements and environment, politics of remediation, and others.
