Many thanks to Adam for letting me hijack the blog once more for a
European Neuroscience and Society Network (ENSN) notice. I am pleased to announce a two-day workshop to be held from November 30 - December 1 in
Aarhus, Denmark. Held in conjunction with the 'Global Minds' conference at the University of Aarhus, the event builds on the recent success of our 'Our Brains, Our Selves' workshop at Harvard University.
The Aarhus 'Our Brains, Our Selves' workshop mirrors the format and
themes of the Harvard event for early-career European researchers. We
particularly welcome proposals for individual papers employing
historical and ethnographic approaches to the new brain sciences;
however, we are also happy to consider other papers which engage with
the ethical, social and legal implications of neuroscience
You can find more information about the content, format and themes of the event here, but suffice to say that the workshop is very discussion focused -- and is thus an excellent platform for junior researchers to present work in progress to an interesting and knowledgable group of social scientists. Note that this is not a neuroscience and law focused event but will present a fairly broad cross-section of approaches to neuroscience issues, so bring your social science hats!
The ENSN will fund travel and accomodation expenses for all participants. Although we are happy to receive any and all applications, I particularly encourage European readers of the Neuroethics and Law blog to apply, as we are sadly somewhat limited in the number of non-Europeans we can fund for the event. As always, you can always get in touch with me if you have questions about the event or about the ENSN in general.
250-300 word abstracts are due September 15th. Looking forward to hearing from you.
