The international conference "Beyond Narrative: Literature, Culture, and the Borderlands of Narrativity" was held from October 10-12 at American Studies Leipzig as part of the work of the DFG Research Network on "Narrative Liminality and/in the Formation of American Modernities."
The conference aimed to map the borderlands of narrativity. It asked how the narrative and the non-
narrative—tied to symbolic forms such as database, play, spectacle, network, or the lyric—work together in instances of cultural expression.
