Modernism and the Mind Sciences, MSA 17, November 19-22, 2015

While modernism's engagements with what Nikolas Rose and Joelle Abi-Rached term the "psy disciplines"—including psychology, psychoanalysis, and psychiatry—have captivated literary critics for decades, recent critical inquiry has demonstrated how modernist texts inform or push against contemporary theories of cognition, including embodied and extended cognition. These approaches suggest that modernism's interest in subjectivity continues to inform and/or resist current scientific approaches to the mind.
