*Sold Out* Mapping the Mind at the Ackland: Artistic Explorations of the Brain in the Works of Virginia Woolf and Santiago Ramón y Cajal

March 8, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


This event is sold out. Email with your name, phone number, or email.


Carolina Public Humanities is teaming up with the Ackland Art Museum to explore the ways in which art can help us understand the complexity of the human brain—both physically and psychologically.

Join Pamela Cooper, associate professor of English and Comparative Literature, in a robust discussion of the short stories of Virginia Woolf, whose stream-of-consciousness writing helped lay the groundwork for modern psychology. Carolyn Allmendinger, Ackland’s Director of Academic Programs, will then guide us through their newest exhibition, The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal, the Spanish Nobel Prize-winning scientist and artist known throughout the world as the father of modern neuroscience.

$30 per person (includes a copy of the book and light snacks). Seats are limited to 20 participants, so sign up early to reserve your spot!
