Project

Literature and teh Extended Mind: A reassessment of Modernism.

This project applies the notion of the 'extended mind' to Modernist literature, by combining cognitive narratology with genetic criticism. A writer's interaction with his or her manuscripts is regarded as part and parcel of the 'extended mind'. This interaction during the writing process can have direct results for the evocation of a character's thought process. Modernism's interest in characters' cognitive processes has often been presented in terms of an 'inward turn'. The project reassesses this view on Modernism.
