ICOG Expert meeting ‘Forms of knowledge: The ‘Cognitive Turn’ and the Middle Ages’ – 14 May 2021

On the crossroad of psychology, biology, sociology, anthropology, medicine and the wide variety of disciplines in the Humanities, there is an increasing interest in the cognitive sciences and how knowledge from this area influences literary studies, history, art history, and studies in material culture. This meeting seeks to discuss the possibilities, but also the limitations of incorporating knowledge systems from different academic fields.
