Munroe Center for Social Inquiry, 2018
Theme: “Perception in a social world: Sensing others and seeing ourselves”
Human beings are both social and sentient. We pay close attention to the world around us and an important part of that world is social in nature. We not only see colors and hear sounds, we perceive threats, social status, shame, who’s being paid attention to, who’s being ignored, and the intentions of others. We also understand ourselves as being the subjects of such social perception. We are concerned with what others perceive when they gaze at us and read what we present to the world. As Nina Simone sang, “Please don’t let me be misunderstood.” We are inviting prominent scholars/speakers to explore different aspects of being social, being sentient, being perceivers, and being perceived, from a variety of different perspectives: philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, media studies, cultural studies, jurisprudence, and science fiction.
