Transdisciplinary approaches to human culture

Starting from February 2015, CaSEs organizes a seminar series that showcases the wide reasearch interests of the group. According to CaSEs's vision the seminars looks at aspects of human culture, both past and present, from a quantitative perspective and trascending the boundaries of taditional academic disciplines.

Seminars are held at Ciutadella Campus and are open to everyone. Talks are announced on the group's website news page. Below you can find a list of the scheduled talks, with links to the abstracts and pdfs of the presentations.
