A Graduate Conference on Attention and Salience

Attention and salience help to guide us through an otherwise cluttered world. Attention directs us either consciously or unconsciously to certain agents, objects, features and events while salience determines what appears to us as striking. This year’s conference aims to tackle questions such as: What constitutes different forms of attention and salience? What is the role of attention and salience in guiding our actions and communication? What are the epistemic, social and ethical underpinnings of attention and salience?

July 6-8, 2023

Ella Whiteley (London School of Economics)
