The works of Kurt Vonnegut prominently feature with issues connected to attention through tropes and topics as well as through literary technique: it is a core motif in many of his writings, and is of key importance with regard to his style. This workshop invites contributed papers approaching the notion of attention in the Vonnegutian uvre through literary theory, philosophy,anthropology, and psychology among others. We are particularly interested in contributions presenting interdisciplinary investigations.

Participants will have approximately 20 minutes for presentation, which will be followed by a 10-minute Q&A session and discussion.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 12 PM, March 31, 2013. You shall receive a response on acceptance/rejection by April 5.
