Topics and approaches may include, but are not limited to, cognitive poetics or cognitive cultural studies, affect and reception, embodiment, neuroscience, developmental cognition, Theory of Mind, ecological cognition, early modern models of cognition, etc.

CFP MLA 2013 -- The Cognitive Neuroscience of Attention

updated: 
Tuesday, March 6, 2012 - 9:17pm
MLA Cognitive Approaches to Literature Division

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Attention
We invite abstracts for a session focusing on the neuroscience of attention. How do recent developments in understanding perception and focus relate to research on reading processes? What do readers miss, what do they foreground and why? How do priming effects from marketing and commercialism, for example, direct attention? What do studies on lack of attention (e.g., ADHD) contribute to the discussion?

Please send a 300-word abstract and brief CV by March 15 to both Julien Simon jjsimon@indiana.edu and Elizabeth Nixon nixon.94@osu.edu

MLA Cognitive Approaches to Literature Division

The Past, Present, and Future of Cognitive Literary Studies (Round Table)
Fifteen years after the MLA Cognitive Approaches to Literature discussion group was created and in recognition of its new division status, we seek to reflect on the field of cognitive literary studies: its history, current state, and the multiple directions that it is taking. How have cognitive approaches helped literary critics and scientists understand human culture and the mind? What is the present panorama of this interdisciplinary interface and how is it evolving?
