Course Description:

This course offers an introduction to what has come to be known as cognitive poetics. Taking our best current knowledge of how our minds and language work, this course takes you through key questions of literature and reading: why do we feel anything for fictional characters? Why do we get angry, moved, irritated, annoyed or sentimental about imaginary people in imagined worlds? Why do the lives of imaginary minds living in fictional bodies seem to matter so much to readers? The answers to these questions are surprising and empowering.

‘How to read…a mind’ is the first in a series of ‘how to read…’ courses which will be presented by applied linguists, discourse analysts and literary critics at The University of Nottingham.

In advance of the course starting you can join the conversation using #FLread or contact @PeterJStockwell on Twitter.
