The Narrative Research Group based in the Media School at Bournemouth University is hosting an interdisciplinary one-day symposium that will examine the representation of real people across media. Invited speakers include professionals, practitioners and scholars working with stories about real people in journalism, literature, visual media, online spaces and popular culture. It is hoped that the symposium will provide a forum to bring together those interested in the intersections between narrative theory and media/cultural studies. Please see the attached draft programme for further details.
This event is free to attend, and coffee and lunch will be provided on the day. However, as spaces are limited, you will need to register in advance by contacting the convenors, Bronwen Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Julia Round (email@example.com) before Wednesday 25 August.
