Interconnections between Culture and Behaviour: Interdisciplinary Perspectives
Date: 19th Feb 2016
Time: 9.30 – 5pm
Location: Wolfson Research Exchange (Room 1 & 2), University of Warwick Library
This conference will investigate the interconnections between culture and behaviour. Renowned keynote speakers will give you interesting insights into how this is done in their respective fields and the conceptual and methodological challenges they see. After each presentation you will have the opportunity to discuss with fellow PhD students and academics the implications for your own research and your own discipline in a world café style. This will give you the chance to meet fellow PhD students who are also interested in culture and behaviour and to learn about different perspectives.
