Under Western Eyes: East Asia in Anglophone Fiction (Special Session proposal for MLA 2013 Boston, MA)
Increasingly important to the world economy as an engine of growth, the dynamic region of East Asia (China, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Korea) has for decades figured prominently in world media for its critical geopolitical position. But how has East Asia's emergence onto the world stage been reflected in English-language literature? This panel invites papers on recent (20th-century) Anglophone fiction set in East Asia; please send abstract of 1-2 pp along with a current c.v. to Mary Goodwin (email@example.com) by 15 March 2012.
Cognitive Theories and the Comedia [Collaborative Session]
We invite proposals exploring how cognitive theories shed new light on early modern Spanish drama, performance and theatrical culture as well as how insights from the comedia can contribute to the growth of cognitive literary and dramatic study. Proposals should engage with both the comedia scholarship and cognitive literary studies. 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.
Please submit one page proposals on any aspect of film theory or criticism to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15.
Last year's panel included papers on aestheticism in film, film authorship/adaptation, and feminist subjectivity in film.

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?
