Symposium to Explore Cave Experience from Multidisciplinary Perspectives

October 9, 2012

Caves and Cognition, a multidisciplinary symposium at UC Merced, will look at the phenomenology of caves as special, sacred or ritual spaces. Presenters will explore how humans conceptualize caves and whether there are patterns to human conceptualizations, behavior and perceptual and cognitive aspects of being in caves. 

The symposium begins with a keynote by rock-art specialist Paul S.C. Taçon at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 18 at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center, 645 Main St. The talk is free and open to the public.

The symposium continues at UC Merced on Oct. 19 and 20. The schedule is online.
