Cognition in a Changing World
In the past decade, the world has combated political misinformation campaigns, ushered in an AI revolution, navigated a pandemic, wrestled with ecological degradation, and worked to solve ongoing racial injustice. As society changes, so too does our understanding of cognition. In the speaker series “Cognition in a Changing World,” the Department of Cognitive Science at Case Western Reserve University invites emerging voices in the study of human cognition to discuss new areas of research that will shape our tomorrow.
This series is organized by the undergraduate students of the department.
All talks are held via Zoom. Registration links for upcoming events in the series will be made available on this page. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
