Please see our conference page for details (including a full program) about the conference "Beyond Narrative: Literature, Culture, and the Borderlands of Narrativity."
For the past two years, researchers from around Germany have investigated and discussed 'narrative liminality' in a network funded by the German Research Foundation. As part of their collaboration, they have explored and theorized the boundaries and interrelations between the symbolic forms of narrative, play, data, ritual, spectacle, and others. On October 10-12, 2019, this work culminated in a conference on the topic "Beyond Narrative: Literature, Culture, and the Borderlands of Narrativity," organized by American Studies Leipzig faculty and convened at Leipzig's University Library.
A preliminary program for the conference "Beyond Narrative: Literature, Culture, and the Borderlands of Narrativity" (October 10-12, 2019) is now available.
Members of the Narrative Liminality research network presented a number of talks at the annual conference of the Society for the Study of Narrative, held from May 30 to June 1, 2019, in Pamplona, Spain.
