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.

Canadian Review of Comparative Literature/Peking U. Journal of Comparative Literature and World Literature

Recent understandings of world literature have moved away from a focus on delineating canons of geographically-distributed great works, and towards describing a complex process of influence and reaction between increasingly-porous national and linguistic boundaries. As the discipline that most clearly claims responsibility for understanding literature beyond such boundaries, does Comparative Literature need to follow in the tracks of its object of study and somehow deterritorialize itself? As well, what would such a project mean, in terms of new methodologies, objects of study, disciplinary self-conceptions, development of linguistic and literary competencies, and interdepartmental or international research collaborations?
