This seminar will bring non-scientists into critical engagement with neuroscientific knowledge in order to build interdisciplinary conversations about the brain, mind, body, and culture. Readings for the seminar will draw from philosophy, feminist theory, sociology, legal studies, political science, the arts, memoir and fiction as well as more traditionally brain-focused disciplines. Alongside the seminar, which will meet every three weeks, a NeuroCultures Lecture Series organized in conjunction with the Center for the Study of Women and Society will offer monthly lectures open to the public that echo the Seminar’s key themes.
