Pufendorf & Friends
With the holiday season around the corner the Pufendorf IAS invites you to the semester’s final After Work on December the 15th.
Welcome to a conversation on Spatial and social cognition – birds, robots, and musical practice.
This conversation brings together three researchers from, what might seem as, three disparate disciplines: Susanne Åkesson, professor in animal ecology, Ingar Brinck, professor in theoretical philosophy, and Markus Tullberg, postdoctoral researcher in music education.
Underpinning their respective research interests lie fundamental questions about cognition, perception, and orientation/navigation. This conversation explores how their different interests intersects, overlaps, and enlighten each other. As such, it is an open inquiry into interdisciplinary potentials.
In connection to the talk the transverse flute duo Ralsgård & Tullberg performs traditional Swedish music.
Seasonal drinks, snacks and sweets will be served.
We appreciate if you let us know if you are planing to attend, but you are welcome to drop in regardless. Register here
Susanne Åkesson, is a professor in Evolutionary ecology. She studies movement ecology of birds and other animals, and especially the phenotypic characteristics of endogenous migration programs and how animals have adapted to cope with long migrations. Susanne Åkesson is director of the Center for Animal Movement Research (CAnMove) at Lund University.
Ingar Brinck, is professor in Theoretical Philosophy. Her research focuses on the intersection of philosophy, psychology and cognitive science, social robotics, and concerns foundational issues within cognition and communication from a philosophical, developmental, and evolutionary perspective. Ingar Brinck is the head of the Com Cog Lab at Lund University
Markus Tullberg is a Postdoctoral researcher at the Malmö Academy of Music. His research focuses on artistic expression within the realm of music education in upper secondary schools in Sweden. He is a member of the Com Cog Lab at Lund University
Andreas Ralsgård and Markus Tullberg are breathing new life into the Swedish wooden flute tradition. They started playing together more than ten years ago, united by their passion to the flute and to the traditional music of Sweden. Together they have rediscovered the tunes of the old flute masters as well as made interpretations of fiddle tunes.
What is Pufendorf & Friends?
Pufendorf & Friends is a series of open discussions and After Works for researchers, organized by the Pufendorf IAS in cooperation with other departments and centres at Lund University. We hope to create a space for informal meetings across all discipline- and faculty boundaries.
Bring a coworker and come mingle with colleagues from other parts of the university. All are welcome!
Time and place: 16.00 – 18.00. The Pufendorf IAS, Biskopsgatan 3.
About the Pufendorf IAS
The Pufendorf IAS (Pufendorfinstitutet) is an interdisciplinary institute at Lund University. The institute is a place where researchers from all faculties at Lund University – from science and medicine to the humanities and arts – are invited to work together. The aim is to be a creative forum, an incubator for new ideas and a springboard for new research initiatives.
