The project will take place from 26th September to 28th October, 2017. During this period, the 16 researchers selected will work in one of the 8 host institutions (as detailed below).
The conference will last three days, from 26th to 28th October. It will be divided into different sections and topics:
(1) The origins of a symbolic mind from an evolutionary point of view;
(2) The development of a symbolic mind from an aesthetic mind, also from an archaeological point of view;
(3) The cognitive implications of the aesthetic attitude;
(4) The psychobiological underpinnings of aesthetic and artistic practices;
(5) The relationship between “mimetic practices”, “human theatricality” and “aesthetic mind”.
Each one of the 16 young researchers selected will be assigned to one of eight departments of eight host institutions.
