Subject:        Call for Papers: Shakespeare and Cognitive Science

College Literature seeks submissions for a special issue on Cognitive
Shakespeare: Criticism and Theory in the Age of Neuroscience to be guest
edited by Patrick Colm Hogan and Lalita Pandit. Cognitive science has
developed with remarkable rapidity in the past decade, extending into
the study of the fine arts, film, and literature. In literature,
Shakespeare studies have been a particular locus of cognitive
developments. This special issue will address the current status of and
future prospects for the cognitive study of literature generally, and of
Shakespeare study in particular. Submissions may consider specific plays
or poems by Shakespeare, broader themes in Shakespeare's works, or
larger theoretical issues illustrated by reference to Shakespeare's
texts or Shakespearean criticism. Submissions might take up such issues
as cognitive modeling in interpretation, emotive appraisal in characters
and audiences, creative cognition theory applied to Shakespeare, the
dramatic amygdala, Shakespeare's cognitive metaphors, perception in the
theater (or cinema), verse in working memory, the historical
particularization of narrative universals, the cognitive schemas of
Shakespearean criticism, reception aesthetics and the brain,
synthesizing neuroscience and historicism, the possibility of cognitive
psychoanalysis, or other topics.

Submit three copies and disk (preferably in Microsoft Word), along with
SASE, to College Literature, 210 E. Rosedale Ave., West Chester
University, West Chester, PA, 19383. Submission deadline is 1 March
