Religion, Cognition and Culture

About

The Religion, Cognition and Culture (RCC) research unit explores the dynamic interrelations between religion, cognition and culture from both top-down and bottom-up disciplinary approaches. Its scientific methodology is explicitly interdisciplinary and draws on and practices laboratory methods as well as fieldwork, textual, iconological and archaeological methods in close cooperation with its partners in psychology, the neurosciences and the humanities.

RCC is part of the research programme Interdisciplinary Research in Religion and a research unit at the School of Culture and Society, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University.
