Mirroring: From the Pool of Narcissus to Social Cognition

6:30pm, Tuesday 9 October 2012

Village Roadshow Theatrette, State Library of Victoria, 179 La Trobe Street, Melbourne

 

Barbara Maria Stafford is an independent writer, curator and speaker. Her work has consistently explored the intersections between the visual arts and the physical and biological sciences from the early modern to the contemporary era. Her current research charts the revolutionary ways the neurosciences are changing our views of the human and animal sensorium, shaping our fundamental assumptions about perception, sensation, emotion, mental imagery, and subjectivity. Her most recent book is The Field Guide to a New Metafield: Bridging the Humanities-Neurosciences Divide (UCP, 2011).
