Content disclaimer: This work address historical and continuing discrimination against Māori, disabled and neurodivergent peoples that some people might find challenging.
The chronicle of <cognition> is a collaborative project tracing histories of human and non-human cognition through a series of live events, online contributions and a large-scale wall work. With an emphasis on neurodiversity in Aotearoa, the 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 is 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.
