The Cognitive Turn in Contemporary American Literature

updated: 
Thursday, August 30, 2012 - 11:51am
NEMLA 2013--Boston

This panel will explore the 'cognitive turn' in literary studies as it emerges in contemporary American fiction and non-fiction. Since George H. W. Bush declared the 1990's the "decade of the brain," there has been a surge of cross-disciplinary work done at the site of cognitive studies, neuroscience and the humanities. For example, scholars such as Lisa Zunshine and Paul John Eakin have called for literary methodologies that account for cognition and perception in their analyses. Additionally, a growing number of fiction and non-fiction texts use cognitive studies and neuroscientific research to upend generic constraints, as well as challenge assumptions about how we construct, perceive, and describe the world and ourselves within it.

Since the early 1990's, the internet has increasingly influenced how cultural texts are read and disseminated. This media shift has transformed long-held notions of publicness, authority, and the archive. For media scholar Lisa Gitelman, media history is about nothing less than the 'experience of meaning' (18), an experience that the web has changed by 'eschew[ing] the punctual logic of more conventional public discourse' (144). This panel enters ongoing debates about the internet's influence on literature, critics, and their publics, exploring how new media's social network shapes fiction and the critical reading practices that make sense of it.

MLA Workshop: Get Started in Digital Humanities with Help from DHCommons
Thursday, 3 January 2013, 8:30am-12:30pm

At the 2012 MLA, conference attendees packed many sessions on the digital humanities (DH), reflecting the growing interest in this domain. Yet many newcomers to digital humanities lack opportunities to connect with the DH community, get help from experienced practitioners with conceptualizing and launching a project, or begin building the skills they need to realize their projects. This four-hour preconvention workshop welcomes language and literature scholars who wish to learn about, start, or join digital scholarly projects for research and/or teaching.
