Cognitive Sciences Project

Cognitive Sciences is an interdisciplinary venture with huge research powers and potential. Almost all disciplines have already, or will benefit from, insights from this vantage point. Amongst the disciplines rank Anthropology, Archaeology, Education, Languages, Linguistics, Psychology, and Religion.

The project, hosted by the Department of Old Testament and Ancient Near Eastern Studies, aims at incentivising the following:

  • Interdisciplinary research;
  • Research outputs;
  • An increase in student enrolment;
  • Community involvement and public awareness.
