>conference topic for 2008 is Language and the Scientific Imagination.
>
>The conference is organised around individual workshops (panels) across a
>wide range of subject areas and disciplines. Within the section covering
>Art, Theater, Literature, Culture, Music, I am organising a panel on
>Scientific / empirical studies of theatre, literature and the arts
>
>In this workshop / panel, we explore examples of completed, ongoing or
>planned research projects in which a phenomenon of theatre, literature or
>the arts has been / will be subjected to investigation employing the
>methodology of science. An example is an empirical psychological study
>(using questionnaires and measures of saliva cortisol, heart rate and
>breathing frequency) comparing two different approaches to helping stage
>actors overcome excessive stage fright. We will discuss what these examples
>can tell us about the efficacy of science in allowing us to arrive at a
>better understanding of phenomena on theatre, literature and the arts.
>
>Please send abstracts of existing, ongoing or planned projects that meet the
>remit of the above workshop description and brief CVs to the me, preferably
