The academic fraternity world over is preoccupied with various ways of understanding language, literature and culture. In addition to their interrelations and interdependence, the new ideas and approaches emerging from various disciplines like literary theory, philosophy, anthropology, linguistics, pragmatics and discourse analysis alongside technological revolution and socio-cultural transformations, have a bearing on our perception of language and literature.

The Cognitive Turn in Contemporary American Literature (NEMLA 2013)

updated: 
Monday, August 13, 2012 - 6:01pm
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.

The Ambassadorship of Literature, a symposium at New York University, November 2-3, 2012

updated: 
Monday, August 13, 2012 - 5:25pm
Greg Londe and Caroline Zoe Krzakowski, New York University

The figure of the diplomat has received relatively little consideration in the study of transnational literature. We are organizing a symposium on diplomacy and literature that will bring together scholars and practitioners to address the relationship between embodied statecraft and the literary voice in realms of extraterritorial jurisdiction. As agents of mediation, alert to linguistic ambivalence, the ambassador and the author alike fulfill a privileged role of joining and compromise, of mediation and experimentation at the points where cultures and languages meet.
