We invite proposals for 20 minute papers and preformed panels for the second
international conference associated with the research network, Cognitive
Futures in the Humanities, funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research
Council. The conference will be hosted by Durham University, on 24-26 April

The purpose is to explore, and critically evaluate, new ways of working in
the arts and humanities that respond to concepts developed in the sciences
of mind and brain. It will be an interdisciplinary conference for
researchers from the cognitive sciences, philosophy, literary studies,
linguistics, narratology, cultural studies, critical theory, film,
performance studies, and beyond. The aim is to identify how the ‘cognitive
humanities’ can emerge as a dynamic and critical field of enquiry.

Topics relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to):

Cognitive neuroscience and the arts

Language, meaning and cognitive processing 

Embodied cognition 

Phenomenology of technologies 

Cognitive poetics and interpretation 

Social minds 

Theory of mind and mind-blindness 

The Bayesian brain 

Conceptual blending and creativity 

Empirical aesthetics 

Extended cognition Ideology and the cognitive sciences 

Cognitive approaches to visual culture 

Thinking and feeling in narrative 

Cognitive historicism 

Animal consciousness and perspective 

Objects, artifacts and print culture

The following themed sessions will be organised as part of the programme,
with a leading specialist serving as a respondent. Please indicate if you
would like your paper to be considered for one of these:

A) Interdisciplinarity in Theory and Practice
B) The Extended Mind
C) Theatre and Performance
D) Storyworlds and Fictionality
E) Brains, Culture and Mental Pathology

Submission Details

Annual Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, July 24-27, 2014 at the Seelbach
Hilton.  Conference information will be posted at
http://www.documentaryediting.org/wordpress/?page_id=71 as it becomes

Through its annual meeting, the ADE promotes cooperative networking and the
exchange of ideas among editors who employ critical thinking and technical
skills to present original texts to diverse audiences in a variety of
formats. Members of the Association work with documents from the broad
range of human experience, encompassing public papers, private
correspondence, literary manuscripts, graphic images, and music.

The Program Committee welcomes submissions for presentations on all aspects
of documentary editing and textual scholarship, including but not limited
to editorial practice, theory, varieties of texts, collaboration, uses of
edited documents in K-12 curricula, and publication. Proposals for
individual papers are welcome. (If you are interested in proposing a
complete panel, please consult with the program chair before preparing your
submission.) Program participants do not have to be members of the ADE. The
Program Committee encourages submissions by students.

With funding by the National Historical Publications and Records
Commission, the Association offers additional opportunities in Louisville
in conjunction with the annual meeting: the Institute for Editing
Historical Documents, to be held July 20-24 for individuals new to the
practice of historical documentary editing.  Experienced documentary
editors provide instruction in the principles of their field and insight
into the realities of their work. For more information, contact Bob
Karachuk, Education Director, Association for Documentary Editing, at
ade-educationdir at documentaryediting.org<ADE-education at documentaryediting.org>

This year’s annual meeting will include a full session devoted to poster
presentations. This session will enable editing professionals, students,
teaching faculty, and independent researchers to showcase their projects or
present focused topics in a setting that features personal interaction and
informal conversation. Participants will have the option of making their
posters available on the ADE’s website before the meeting. Recognition will
be given at the meeting to the best posters by students. (See below for
tips on creating a poster presentation.)

To propose a paper or poster, send an abstract of no more than 250 words to
the chair of the Program Committee at
