      Hi Biopoets,

      Further to the recent discussion - on revolutions, and Science in the Arts (consilience etc)
      This CFP may be of interest...
      (I am definitely going to submit a paper... ie - based around: http://storyality.wordpress.com/an-index-to-this-blog/ )

      Call for Submissions

      Journal of Literary Theory Vol. 9, No. 1 (2015)

      Special Issue: Empirical Methods in Literary Studies


      Editors: Fotis Jannidis (Wuerzburg, Germany), Gerhard Lauer (Goettingen, Germany), Simone Winko (Goettingen, Germany)


      Empirical methods have a humble yet continuous tradition in literary studies. It is a tradition that seems to stand in fundamental opposition to historical and hermeneutical approaches due to differences concerning the practice of validation, reliability and extensiveness of their claims. JLT is interested in publishing articles that take a theoretical and systematic perspective on the question how empirical methods – despite those differences – might fit into the research practices of literary studies. How can both approaches complement each other? How can established questions in literary studies be answered differently (or maybe even more satisfyingly) by using empirical approaches? How does literature as a subject matter change through the use of empirical approaches, such as methods from the cognitive sciences or computer based processes? Which preconditions should (still) be clarified, so that empirical methods can become part of the literary studies?


      We encourage submissions from all language and literature departments as well as other fields within the humanities and social sciences. Contributions should not exceed 50,000 characters in length and have to be submitted until August 1, 2014. Please submit your contribution electronically via our website http://www.jltonline.de under "Articles". Articles are chosen for publication by an international advisory board in a double-blind review process.


      For further information about JLT and to view the submission guidelines, please visit http://www.jltonline.de/index.php/articles  ("About JLT" and "For Authors") or contact the editorial office at jlt@...-goettingen.de.
