INTDS 314 - Cognitive Humanities


Credits: 4
 A study of the interdisciplinary approach called the cognitive humanities. This class will examine humanistic and empirical concepts of affect, emotion, and “the passions.” Beginning in the eighteenth century with philosophers and writers and moving into modern research, we integrate frameworks for conceptualizing how we express and regulate feeling. Literary sources include literary texts and genres from British Romanticism. Scientific sources begin with historical examinations of emotion and move into modern-day psychological and nonscientific work. Broadly, our study models interdisciplinary approaches to research and scholarship using a primarily discussion and lab-based format.
