Call for Papers
Cognitive Approaches to Irish Literature (Panel)
New England American Conference for Irish Studies
University of Connecticut-Storrs, CT 10/21/2006-10/22/2006
We invite submissions of papers for a panel that will examine Irish
literature with the tools of cognitive science, cognitive psychology,
and cognitive literary theory. Recent discoveries in cognitive science
have profound implications for literary studies. Cross-disciplinary
scholars have made huge strides in showing how the functioning of the
embodied mind is inherently caught up with the production of literary
material. This panel will draw upon the most provocative insights of
contemporary cognitive psychology and science in order to re-examine
some of the more perplexing moments in Irish literature.
Submit a one page abstract of a 15-20 minute paper to by July 1, 2006.
