SUMMER COURSE IN NARRATIVE STUDIES 2016 - 7-12 AUGUST - AARHUS UNIVERSITY
The Summer Course in Narrative Studies (SINS) is an intensive PhD-level course that brings together postdoctoral students, faculty members and leading scholars in a multi-disciplinary, international discussion of existing and emerging concepts and approaches in the broad field of narrative study. The course is hosted by Aarhus University and takes place at the Sandbjerg Estate, Denmark, 7-12 August.
Through a combination of keynote lectures, participant papers, workshops and master classes, the summer institute covers the state of the art of current approaches and provides participants with outstanding possibilities of getting feedback on their own work. Keynote lecturers and workshop leaders this year include Jens Brockmeier, Vera Nünning, Ansgar Nünning, Henrik Skov Nielsen, and Jan Alber.
The institute welcomes scholars working with any and all types of narrative form or function, be it verbal or non-verbal, fictive or non-fictive, spontaneous or artificial, strategic or symptomal, and it will present researchers from fields such as postclassical narratology, narrative inquiry, rhetorical narrative theory, cognitive narrative theory and transmedial approaches.
The deadline for application is April 16, 2016.
