      Subject: RE: [coglit] dreams and narrative

      A couple of guys, Timothy Horvath & Jason Rondstadt, have been
      presenting papers on narrative genre and dreams at recent conferences.
      Their title from the recent UConn conference was: Drifting Between
      States: Jose Saramago and Milan Kundera through the Lens of Cognitive
      Literary Dream Studies. The abstract is available at

      Their title for the Dactyl conference was "Dreams of a Unified Theory:
      Dream Studies as a Bridge Between Neuroscience and Fiction," abstract

      That paper outlined characteristics of narratives that match particular
      dream states as described by recent neuroscience studies. Their handout
      for the talk was essentially what you've asked for, a nice list of
      stories/authors matched with particular stylistic characteristics
      defined by dream theory.

      Dear colleagues,

      A friend of mine with a psychoanalysis background wants to launch a
      small empirical project to find out to what extent the structure of
      dreams is similar to everyday narrative (or not). Given that
      compression, displacement and symbolization are so prevalent in dreams,
      or so Freud claims, with what type of narrative would that correspond
      most (and, therefore, which kind of theory seems most applicable)?

      Is anyone aware of work that relates to this this connection between
      dreams and narrative or to the (causal, etc.) structure of dreams alone?
      I'd also be interested in your opinions!
