This lecture series will explore the range of options of empirical approaches to literature, and discuss the chances provided by, as well as the challenges inherent in, the methods of empirical studies in the humanities. An international line-up of experts from the fields of (cognitive) literary studies, stylistics, psychology, and linguistics from the US, the UK, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Germany will present and discuss theoretical approaches, methods, and sample studies.
The lectures will cover a variety of topics of central relevance to cognitive and empirical literary studies, including emotions during reading, perspective taking, experientiality and absorption, mental simulation, variation in language use, and corpus analysis. This lecture series continues the tradition of the ArtCogLit lecture series, and launches the activities of the newly founded Aachen Center for Cognitive and Empirical Literary Studies (ACCELS).
