Peter Stockwell - University of Nottingham.

There are many names for the field that has come to be known as cognitive poetics, cognitive stylistics, cognitive rhetoric, or simply cognitive literary studies. However, taking 'the cognitive turn' seriously entails a collapsing of the traditional dimensions of meaning, feeling and value. In this talk, Peter Stockwell outlines where cognitive poetics has come from and where it seems to be going, with a view on the direction it ought to take and the paths it should avoid.
