Critical Perspectives Visiting Talk: Elaine Auyoung, “Literary Study and Learning to Notice”

April 4, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Event Navigation

Elaine Auyoung, associate professor of English at Univeristy of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts, will present a lecture, “Literary Study and Learning to Notice,” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4 in UNC Asheville’s Laurel Forum, Karpen Hall.

Auyoung is the author of “When Fiction Feels Real,” which examines the relationship between novelistic technique and literary experience. She is working on two other book projects currently.

Her talk will engage psychological research on learning to offer fresh accounts of how literary critics can reduce barriers to learning, of the distinctive forms of knowledge that literature and literary study provide, and of how psychological perspectives can help critics move beyond our disciplinary blind spots.
