About The chronicle of <cognition>
This event is part of the series of live events that are contributing to The chronicle of <cognition>, a collaborative project tracing histories of human and non-human cognition through live events, online contributions and a large-scale wall work.
With an emphasis on neurodiversity in Aotearoa, The chronicle of <cognition> project addresses how the topic of cognition inherently intersects with global discussions concerning white supremacy, disability, gender, sexuality, animal rights, biodiversity and artificial intelligence. Each contributor to the live event series has been asked to present a narrative thread that situates this discussion in relation to key events in a range of disciplines, such as science, technology, policy, activism, art, film or literature.
