(Re)Presenting the Archive

University of Sheffield, UK

In a Higher Education context where originality in research is increasingly valorised, what place is there for explicitly re-presentational practices such as scholarly editing and curating? At first glance, the REF2014 landscape would seem favourable. The panel guidelines recognise "scholarly editions", "databases" and "electronic resources" as outputs, and promote "the creation of archival or specialist collections to support the research infrastructure". Edition and curation also produce tangible results—including printed and digital texts, catalogues and exhibitions—that can impact beyond the academy, preserving and presenting materials for a general audience. But what is the value of these activities and how can it be measured?

Literary Responses to Mind Science, MLA 2014, Abstracts Due 3/15

updated: 
Monday, February 11, 2013 - 9:42am
Nikki Skillman / American Academy of Arts and Sciences

"In any period," M.H. Abrams writes, "the theory of mind and the theory of art tend to turn on similar analogues, explicit or submerged." How has the literature of the long twentieth century responded to philosophical and cultural transformations brought about by the rise of mind science? What thematic and formal means have literary artists used to explore the ontological, epistemological, and ethical implications of cognitive materialism? How has the explanatory power of cognitive science eclipsed the explanatory power of psychoanalysis in recent fiction and poetry? Possible topics include the neuronovel, drug use, the resistance to science, mental illness, correspondences between biological and textual form.
