The conference is organized to explore the broad interface of narrative theory, literary pedagogy, and the uses of narrative as a tool for teaching and distributing knowledge in diverse disciplinary fields. A special feature of the conference will be a series of workshops devoted to close analysis of particular narrative texts – fictional as well as non-fictional – which are studied together by the participants from varying theoretical angles.
Professor Jens Brockmeier (University of Manitoba and Free University of Berlin)
Professor Rita Charon (Columbia University)
