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.

Subject: [coglit] dreams and narrative
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!
