ROMST 350 - Brains, Everywhere

Description
Over the last three decades we have witnessed the speedy rise of the "neurosciences," an historical event characterized by some "neuro-cultures" and "neuro-subjects." In this course we will track this history and ask what change in meaning might "neuro" effect in the disciplines that were previously "neuro"-free. If there is a neuro-turn in the humanities and social sciences, what is it that's "turning"? We will consider the centrality of brain research in these discussions to ask questions about the meaning of "personhood/subjectivity," "human/post human," "mind/body," "self/ego," and "emotion/affect."
