Aachen Research Team Cognitive Literary Studies

Within the framework of a cognitive perspective on literary reception processes, it is part of ART CogLit’s activities to conduct empirical investigations of the observed reactions of real readers in order to test and extend hypotheses on ideal reading processes and reader responses developed in literary theory. Thus, we aim at combining qualitative-hermeneutic and empirical approaches to literary studies and intend ARTCogLit to be both inclusive and interdisciplinary.

ART CogLit will also focus on the organization of research colloquia and public lectures.
