Abstract [en]

What do we know about the particular mental state of readers absorbed in literature? Researchers, educators and the public alike worry about its frailty and importance for sustainable society development, but its nature remains largely unknown. This talk will present a critical argument on how the reading consciousness tends to be understood in education. I will tackle three pervasive ideas: 1) the idea that the reader’s consciousness is a container of sorts; 2) the idea that the reader’s consciousness should exclude stimuli from one’s immediate environment; and especially 3) the idea that readers should abstract their personal concerns away when learning to read literature. The talk will draw on my research in literary reader response, embodied cognition, and reading behaviour across multiple countries and contexts, ranging from highly skilled adult readers to pupils in primary classrooms.
