Jesuit Book Award

Congratulations to English Professor Alan Richardson who has received a National Jesuit Book Award from the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities and the national Jesuit honor society Alpha Sigma Nu for his book, The Neural Sublime: Cognitive Theories and Romantic Texts. This year’s awards honored books in the humanities and Richardson won in the literature/fine arts category.  The Neural Sublime uses cognitive neuroscience as an analytical tool to examine issues in British Romantic studies. Read the Boston College Chronicle interview with Richardson where he discusses the award and the emerging field of cognitive literary studies.
