In 2017 and 2018 two “Interdisciplinary Research Weeks” will be held, during which we will discuss topics at the intersection of neuroscience, philosophy and theology.
Throughout the Weeks, the following activities will be organized:
- Two keynote talks open to the general public.
- A 6-hour course for academics.
- A 3-day workshop for researchers working on neuroscience, cognitive science, philosophy or theology.
The total number of participants in the workshops should not exceed 25-30, including speakers and audience. We will issue a call addressed to Latin American PhD candidates and scholars who would like to participate in the Week. We will select the best three applications according to the candidates’ proven interest in the topics and their academic curricula, and offer them a grant of up to $ 1,500 to cover travel and lodging expenses. Participation in the workshop will be only by invitation. Invited researchers will have interdisciplinary expertise, in order to ensure an environment where all participants understand the terminology used in the different disciplines. All participants will receive a selection of recent bibliography (two or three papers for each question) and will be asked to read it in advance, since it will trigger the discussions.
