Professor Danna’s Cognition and Society (A&S 240) students have created an exhibit on culture and cognition in the A&S department (basement of Marquis Hall). Please swing by and check it out!
Curating Culture: The Exhibit
This exhibit presents an exploration of the relationship between culture and cognition.
Cognitive processes (such as classification, perception, attention, memory, and time reckoning) structure interpretation and experience, and thus play an essential role in the creation and perpetuation of culture.
Sociology students were asked to make these invisible processes visible by documenting how they are evidenced in everyday objects, artifacts, and practices.
The objects and artifacts in this exhibit represent the results of this effort.
