Gradaute Conference: Seeking Refuge, 23-24 May, 2016

The OED defines 'refuge' as "the state of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger or difficulty." As this all-encompassing definition suggests, refuge is a multifarious concept, subject to many interpretations. Conditions of economic, social and political crisis in our contemporary world have, however, rendered achieving 'refuge' an ever more elusive state.

Call for Papers "Stereotypes"

Special issue of Reti, Saperi, Linguaggi. Italian Journal of Cognitive Sciences

Stereotypes are ambiguous mental entities. They are negative insofar as they are thoughts that limit us in our process of categorization of reality. At the same time, they help us to simplify reality itself and the large number of perceptual stimuli we are faced with in every moment of our lives. So, while stereotypes can, on the one hand, be seen as a tool for categorization or as extensions of categories themselves – actually, a special type of category – on the other, they force us to assign a simplistic, superficial and unthinking label to a portion of reality, thus giving rise to biases and prejudices.
