How literature shapes thought and feelings
Literature, Cognition and Emotions (LCE) is an interdisciplinary hub that brings together literary studies, linguistics, psychology and neurosciences in a new conversation about literature.
Emotions across cultures and languages
- Cultural and cognitive memory
- Literature as a lifeworld technology
Our network of associated research groups and centres stretches from Europe to the US and Australia. We work together with groups in empirical approaches to literature, cognitive literary study, memory studies and digital humanities.
LCE is a collaboration between the following departments at the University of Oslo:
- Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages
- Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages
- Department of Psychology
