Empirical study of Literature Training Network

Project description

Innovative training in the empirical study of literature

Literary reading offers unique mental and emotional benefits and fulfils societal needs based on multiple research findings. In fact, reading contributes to the increasing ability for empathy, reasoning and self-control. It is estimated that 20 % of Europeans lack effective reading skills. Research findings show that time dedicated to reading is low. Scientists underline the need for a better understanding of the neuro-cognitive processes related to literary reading through novel empirical methods and forms of engagement in which empathy plays a key role. The EU-funded ELIT project will offer innovative and interdisciplinary training to a new generation of researchers in the empirical study of literature. It is also a response to the absence of doctoral programmes in Europe.
