The Center for Culture, Mind, and the Brain (CCMB) at the University of Michigan has recently announced the second annual one-day conference on “Culture, Mind, and the Brain”.
The conference is scheduled for April 16th at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Submissions for oral presentations are due on February 11, 2011.
The goal of the conference is to provide an occasion for young scholars (both graduate students and post-docs) from both UM and other institutions to present their work and engage in a scholarly dialogue, thereby helping to form and consolidate a community of people who are committed to the new field of cultural neuroscience. The conference features several oral presentations, a poster session, as well as the opportunity for informal discussions among all participants.
Professor Mike Morris of Columbia Business School will be the keynote speaker. In addition to giving his keynote, he will also join Professors Rich Gonzalez, Ethan Kross, and Carolyn Yoon of the University of Michigan on a panel that will provide comments on each presentation.
Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are strongly encouraged to submit their papers for the oral presentation slots. For the non-UM oral presenters, travel expenses will be covered and lodging will also be provided. All papers pertaining to culture, mind, and/or brain will be considered, but those exploring the interface between culture and the brain will be given greater priority especially for the oral presentation slots.
