Cognitive Futures in the Arts and Humanities 2017 conference
Stony Brook University, 5-7 June 2017
The theme of the 2017 conference is ‘Mind Fields of Language’. The goal is to recognize and value the diverse ways in which terms common to the field are used in different disciplines. A short and by no means comprehensive list includes empathy, embodiment, participation, affordances, reader/spectator, theory of mind, and consciousness, and we welcome proposals that address the past and present usages of these terms, and their value to future research. Although this is the theme of the conference and special attention will be given to proposals that focus on this theme, we want a broad range of papers from the breadth of research being done in this area. The topics studied include aesthetics, mindreading or mentalizing, embodiment, ‘bio’-narratives and biocentrism, perception and memory, affect and emotion, performance, movement and kinesis, subjectivity/qualia and the narrated self, conceptual blending, multimodality, linguistic creativity and figurative language, bilingualism/multilingualism, translation and digital text processing.
