Modernism and the Death of Consciousness

During the first part of the twentieth century, the emerging fields of
psychology and neuroscience altered traditional philosophical
conceptions of mind. However, as the mind became increasingly embodied
in the brain and fragmented nervous system, many prominent thinkers
began to debate the existence of a unifying consciousness. This panel
will explore how the "death of consciousness" affects important
Modernist themes. Please e-mail 300 word abstacts to Deric Corlew
<djcorlew_at_email.unc.edu>
