‘Experimental Entanglements on Cognitive Neuroscience’ is a workshop to be held at the Max-Planck-Institut für Bildungsforschung, in Berlin, on the 25th and 26th of October.
The workshop is centred on the question of whether social scientists and neuroscientists think collaboratively about research subjects’ own assessments of their mental processes in the course of an experiment? We are interested in whether this will this tell us anything about the ‘social’ nature of all experiments, in both design and interpretation – and also in whether we can pursue these questions through experiment, and not just discourse? By using the phrase ‘experimental entanglement,’ we signal a desire to entangle ourselves with, and diffract our ideas through, some other science; we aim to show that calling attention to these questions, and doing experiments, do not have to be mutually exclusive practices.
The organising committee of the workshop is:
Felicity Callard (Durham University, UK)
Des Fitzgerald (London School of Economics, UK)
Simone Kühn (Max-Planck-Institut für Bildungsforschung, Germany)
Ulla Schmid (University of Basel, Switzerland)
