"New Developments in Narratology: Cognitive, Communicative and Philosophical Approaches," Tartu University, May 28-30, 2010.
Nordic Network of Narrative Studies. Objectives: The conference seeks to promote a dialogue among scholars of narrative and provide an overview of the current state of narratology, a variety of narratological methods and analytic approaches, overlappings with other fields and borrowings from various disciplines (cognitive science, rhetorics, sociolinguistics, media studies, psychology, philosophy). The conference invites to reflect upon the (enriching or impoverishing) impact of these overlappings on the state of the art, revision of old concepts and transfer of concepts from one domain to the other and the status of fiction within the new paradigms. The conference seeks to develop a critical understanding of these processes and to test the applicability of new methods and concepts. We welcome both theoretical discussions and practical, narrowly focused case studies that address these issues. Invited Speakers: Prof. Daniel D. Hutto
(University of Hertfordshire)
Prof. Gregory Currie (University of Nottingham)
Prof. Marie-Laure Ryan (University of Colorado, Boulder)
