Economies of Mind: Attention/Distraction/Absorption

Date: Mon. April 15th, 2019, 12:00 pm-1:00 pm
Location: Clark Hall Room 206, 11130 Bellflower Road, Cleveland, OH 44106

What does it mean to listen, read, or look with attention? What roots can we trace for the modern “crisis of distraction”? And how are theories of focus (and its deficit) tied to wider ideas around creativity, productivity, ethics, and aesthetics? These are some of the questions explored in this mini-symposium, featuring a series of short talks by cognitive scientists, literary critics, neurologists and musicologists.

An informal lunch will be served.

This event is free and open to the public.  Registration requested.
