Conference: Literature and the Cognitive Sciences at University of
Connecticut, Storrs.
Deadline: submit 200-300 word abstract by Sept. 21, 2005
Panel: "Cognitive Approaches to Latino/a Narrative and Image"
Panel Organizer: Frederick Luis Aldama, Professor of English and Comparative
Studies at The Ohio State University.
I invite abstracts for the panel "Cognitive Approaches to Latino/a Narrative
and Image" to present at the Literature and the Cognitive Sciences
conference at the University of Connecticut, Storrs (April 6-9, 2006).
Recent advances in such areas as narrative theory, linguistics, and the
cognitive and neurobiological sciences, offer the opportunity for scholars
to see how such research might deepen our understanding of what we do
cognitively and emotively when we engage with (read, listen, view) Latino/a
identified narratives and images. I seek to assemble a panel whereby
scholars will use the tools of cognitive and neuro science, evolutionary
biology, linguistics (Chomskyean and not Saussurean), and narratology, to
approach the study of Latino/a literature, visual art, comics, and/or film.
  Please send 200-300 word abstracts via email before September 21, 2005.
