    For Friday’s blog entry:

    Inventory of key lessons from the past three novels,
    concerning both new/different ways of thinking
    and specific aesthetic techniques in the novels —
    the authors’ poetics, in their “novel” (innovative) expression of experience.
    This can be a brief list of particular items, to add/adjust and consider later.
    Additionally, provide a short rationale about which technique or lesson seems most effective for our project, in reflection, as well as your insights thus far about the “impossible” task of imagining and expressing others’ historically-specific experience
    (and any other new knowledge about novel aesthetics, affect, time, narrative, intuition, etc).

    Remember, this inventory is the “Analogy” component of the CATTt method for invention. We are deriving lessons and techniques that we will try to implement in our experiment, creating new discourse for experience in a scholarly context. More on this coming soon.

    Additional entry, for blogging extra credit:

    discuss one of the presentations from the conference panel that you attended, within our context (using any of the course ideas, issues, or terms). Don’t worry if you need to generalize about the panelist’s points (if you can’t remember specific details); more important to describe your reflection upon the conference themes: history, memory, trauma, nostalgia, literary/aesthetic representation.
    Overall, best to articulate any consequent new ideas, perspectives, insights, reconsideration, etc. from hearing the presentation — any lessons for our project? Any comparison/contrast with our method and experiment, such as judgment vs. aesthetic (Life) apparatus? Feel free to conjecture.
