"We must habituate ourselves to think that every visible is cut out of the tangible, every tactile being in some manner promised to visibility, and that there is encroachment, infringement, not only between the touched and the touching, but also between the tangible and the visible,"
- Merleau-Ponty, The Visible and the Invisible

University of Nevada, Reno

At the turn of the 20th century, Ezra Pound declared the need to "make it new." His call inspired numerous artists, creators, critics, and theorists to push the boundaries of their fields, to discover and invent original forms and technologies, to develop new modes of thinking about ourselves and our worlds—in short, to innovate. Nationally, this translated to the renovation of cities and borders and significant innovations in travel and technology. In the academy, scholars reconceptualized disciplines and established new canons, methodologies, and theoretical models. The drive to innovate to make things new is one of the 20th century's most noted legacies.

[UPDATE] Keynote speakers: The Arts of Attention Conference, Budapest, Hungary (Feb. 28, 2013)

Károli Gáspár University

Attention is increasingly regarded by cognitive scientists and evolutionary anthropologists as a faculty whose development in human animals is constitutive of what it means to be human. This conference invites papers on (1) the ways in which literary texts encode this faculty (tropologically, discoursively, narratologically, ideologically), and/or (2) the ways in which theories of reading have recognized or underestimated the arts and techniques of attention. We particularly invite contributions developing or dismissing the suggestion that literature offers privileged insight into the function of attention as a possibility condition for the imagination, for agency, and for community formation.
