Pursuing the empirical study of literary reception in flesh-and-blood readers, the Aachen Center for Cognitive and Empirical Literary Studies (ACCELS) presents innovative research in the Humanities. Literary reception offers routes into investigating the complex interactions between cognitive and emotional factors of comprehension, as well as the relationship between general mental dispositions and culturally specific meaning. ACCELS aims to contribute to this field of research.
The center serves as an international platform for exchange among scholars studying the processes of understanding literature and other cultural artefacts on the basis of the cognitive sciences and employing a range of empirical methods. ACCELS provides a unique chance to pool the knowledge of many experts in these fields, to initiate collaborative and transdisciplinary research projects, and to thus further the development of Cognitive and Empirical Literary Studies.
