SUMMER COURSE IN NARRATIVE STUDIES 2016
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 it takes place at the Sandbjerg Estate, Denmark, 7.-12. of 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 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 Jens Brockmeier, Vera Nünning, Ansgar Nünning, Henrik Skov Nielsen, and Jan Alber.
The course 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, strategic or sympthomal, and presents researchers from fields such as postclassical narratology, narrative inquiry, rhetorical narrative theory, cognitive narrative theory and transmedial approaches.
Deadline for application is April 16. 2016.
