Narratives and Social Cognition

posted in: Uncategorized

Leeds Humanities Research Institute, Thursday June 19 2014, 10am

It is commonly thought that engaging with narratives can shape the way we engage with the real world. But how? This workshop aims to connect psychological and philosophical research on the mechanisms that enable narratives to shape our social cognition. Looking at the broader context, the workshop will also examine questions such as how such mechanisms can be discovered and whether they are unique to fictional narratives.
