winner of the CELJ "Best New Journal of 2004" award,
invites papers on the following subject:
Narrative as a Way of Thinking

In current usage the word =93narrative=94 means either a sequence of
events, where =93an event=94 is understood as a change from one state to

thought, whether expressive of a conceptual stance or developing and
adjusting one in the process.
