Fourth ENN conference (16-18 April 2015, Ghent, Belgium) - deadline: Sept & Oct. 1 2014
full name / name of organization:
** CALL FOR PAPERS **
Pre-Conference Doctoral Master Class
Modelling Narrative across Borders
Narratologists are increasingly faced with the situation that the concept of narrative varies widely across borders. This is a happy circumstance for the relevance and vitality of narratological concepts. At the same time, however, this situation means that any easy “lateral compatibility” of concepts such as “narrator,” “(un)reliability,” “focalization,” etc. can no longer be taken for granted. Concepts have a different bearing across different media such as the printed book, film or the digital media. Carrying on with the debates that got underway at the 2013 Paris conference, ENN 4 will address these issues by exploring conceptual models and inputs from various disciplines and methodologies such as rhetoric and stylistics, but also more recent developments including the cognitive sciences, media studies, the digital humanities and many more. In doing so, the ENN aims to act as an on-going forum for discussing narrative theory across borders – conceptual, disciplinary, national, cultural, historical.

Pre-Conference Doctoral Seminar – April 14 and 15, 2015
In conjunction with the 4th Conference of the European Narratology Network, a new pre-conference doctoral seminar on interdisciplinary narrative theory will be offered. The seminar will feature as confirmed speaker Professor Chris Meister (Hamburg University). The master class will be devoted partly to the theoretical discussion of narratological parameters and partly to the application of these parameters to (automated) narrative analysis. It will involve a hands-on introduction to tools for computational narratology and collaborative narratological annotation (in cooperation with the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities @GhentCDH ).
Applicants for participation in the seminar (who must be enrolled as doctoral students in a degree-granting institution during the 2014-2015 academic year) doing research on any topic of narrative in any medium are eligible.
Ph.D. students completing the course will receive a diploma. The course counts as 2 ECTS.
