The works of Kurt Vonnegut prominently feature issues connected to attention through tropes and topics as well as through literary technique: it is a core motif in many of his writings, and is of key importance with regard to his style. This workshop invites contributed papers approaching the notion of attention in the Vonnegutian œuvre through literary theory, philosophy,anthropology, and psychology among others. We are particularly interested in contributions presenting interdisciplinary investigations.

Please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words to vonnegut.and.attention@gmail.com as an attached Word or PDF file (please do not paste the abstract into the body of your email!), and include your name and affiliation (if applicable) as well as whether you need any kind of multimedia equipment (projector, etc.) for your presentation. Participants will have approximately 20 minutes for presentation, which will be followed by a 10-minute Q&A session and discussion.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 12 PM, March 31, 2013. You shall receive a response on acceptance/rejection by April 5.
We are looking forward to receiving your proposals! See you in Budapest!
