Submission Deadline: January 14, 2013

“Minding the Body” is an interdisciplinary conference hosted by the English Student Association in the English program at The Graduate Center (CUNY). This conference will include work by graduate students that considers theoretical perspectives and scholarship that explores the mind-body problem via a wide range of disciplines, including the humanities (literary studies, philosophy, visual arts, and performance studies), the social sciences, technology and media studies, neuroscience, medicine, psychology, and cognitive science. Intersections between recent theoretical currents, including theories of mind and consciousness, ideas about emotions and affect, and the relationship between neuroscientific findings and understandings of embodiment, will be explored.

We would like to include the widest possible range of approaches to ways of thinking about “minding the body” in all literary fields and we encourage interrogation of disciplinary boundaries or interdisciplinary perspectives. Papers may be literary and humanities focused, or may consider other perspectives on mind and body from other fields. 

We encourage proposals in other media as well. Please send a proposal of[masked] words as well as display requirements.

    Hi, it seems this ESA conference is closed to non-students. Is this the case?

      Hi Dawn. I don't believe so... on the registration page it says "All are welcome". Did you see this somewhere on the site? Perhaps I missed it.
