Dr James Carney

James’ research is strongly interdisciplinary in character, in that it focuses on the broad intersection between the new sciences of the mind and traditional humanities scholarship. In particular, he looks at how various forms of cultural expression are shaped (but not determined) by different aspects of the human cognitive endowment.
