This panel considers the imagination's literary significance in relation to its underestimated role in everyday cognitive life. Papers may combine analysis of specific texts with psychological, philosophical, or cognitive accounts of the imagination. How does literary representation reflect the everyday imagination at work? How do fictional characters and narrators model commonplace imaginative acts? Most important, how does literature engage our ordinary imaginative powers in such extraordinary ways? Send 300 to 500-word abstracts to Elaine Auyoung at auyoung@fas.harvard.edu.
