This 2012-2013 academic year, we will present a new series of Interdisciplinary Approaches to Consciousness Geballe Workshops, sponsored by the Stanford Humanities Center. We are currently planning workshops on Zombies in philosophy, literature, film, and neuroscience, and also further topics including consciousness & literature, and the hard problem of consciousness.
Speakers include Frank Jackson, David Chalmers, and Pawan Sinha, and we hope to be announcing further speakers (both live and undead) soon!
The CEC is a research initiative at CSLI which is devoted to studying explanations of consciousness. The CEC hosts talks and symposia from a variety of viewpoints exploring the nature of conscious experience. We also sponsor reading groups during the term, led by faculty and graduate students.
