leave a comment »

In preparation for the Exploring the Mind’s Eye interdisciplinary conference, which will take place on October 25-26 at Bilkent, we will have a reading group on imagination and mental imagery where we will discuss some papers by the conference speakers. We will have three sessions this summer, and we will continue in late September. The readings (which might be adjusted based on the participants’ suggestions) for the summer sessions are as follows:

Session 1: June 18, Tuesday, 15:00-16:30, H-355

Session 2: July 2, Tuesday, 15:00-16:30, H-355

Session 3: July 16, Tuesday, 15:00-16:30, H-355

If you are interested in joining the reading group, please contact Tufan Kıymaz.

Organized by the Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Group at Bilkent University.
