Psychonarratology :

Psychonarratology : Foundations for the Empirical Study of Literary Response: “The field of psychonarratology represents an interdisciplinary collaboration between cognitive psychology and discourse processing, and narratology and literary studies. This work provides a broad, integrative framework for pursuing research that is approachable by researchers from both disciplinary backgrounds. Marina Bortolussi and Peter Dixon survey the important problems in literary studies and demonstrate how the methodological and empirical tools of cognitive psychology are applied in this new approach.”


“Don’t look, but today the Sun is a little bigger than usual. That’s because Earth is “at perihelion” on January 4th. What is perihelion? Our planet’s orbit is not a perfect circle, it is an ellipse.
