The LitCult Colloquium is a meeting group intended for an interdisciplinary discussion of theoretical texts concerning key debates in the humanities in general and literary studies in particular. This semester, we will focus on cognitive literary studies and discuss their strands and premises. We will critically review the chances and challenges in the trajectory of the so-called cognitive turn and on-going debates on the usefulness of the humanities and their status in the 21st century.

All Fellows and members of the university are welcome to join us.

This term, meetings take place on Tuesdays at 2.15pm at FRIAS starting on November 9.

Upcoming dates: November 23, December 7, December 21, January 18, February 1.
