CfP: Summer Course In Narrative Studies
We are very pleased to announce a new cooperation between Giessen University and the Summer Course in Narrative Studies at Aarhus University, Denmark, and we would like to take the opportunity to draw your attention to this year’s program.
The Summer Course in Narrative Studies (SINS) is an intensive PhD-level course that brings together PhD students, 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 it takes place at the Sandbjerg Estate, Denmark, July 30th – August 4th.
Through a combination of keynote lectures, participant papers, workshops and master classes the summer course covers the state of the art of current approaches as well as provides the participants with outstanding possibilities of getting feedback on their own work. Key note lecturers and work shop leaders this year include Dorothy Hale, Molly Andrews, Marco Caracciolo, and Jan-Noël Thon.
The institute welcomes scholars working with any and all type of narrative form or function, be that verbal or non-verbal, fictive or non-fictive, spontaneous or artificial, and presents researchers from fields such as postclassical narratology, narrative inquiry, rhetorical narrative theory, cognitive narrative theory and transmedial approaches.
Deadline for applications is April 20th 2017.
From personal experience I can vouch for the academic excellence and collegiate atmosphere of these sessions.
Please note that, should you be accepted, you will still need to apply for funding from the IPP or the GCSC. More information can also be found on www.sins.au.dk, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
