CFP: Summer Course in Narrative Studies (SINS) 2017 (deadline: April 20. 2017)

Summer Course in Narrative Studies 2017

SINS17 is now open for registrations - feel free to pass this on to anyone who might be interested (and sorry for any cross-posting). Participants in previous iterations of the course (2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016) are also encouraged to apply.



The Summer Course in Narrative Studies (SINS) is an intensive PhD-level course that brings together PhD students, postdoctoral students, faculty members and leading scholars in a multi-disciplinary, international discussion of existing and emerging concepts and approaches in the broad field of narrative study. The course is hosted by Aarhus University and it takes place at the Sandbjerg Estate, Denmark, July 30th – August 4th.

   Through a combination of keynote lectures, participant papers, workshops and master classes the summer course covers the state of the art of current approaches as well as provides the participants with outstanding possibilities of getting feedback on their own work. Key note lecturers and work shop leaders this year include Dorothy Hale, Molly Andrews, Marco Caracciolo, and Jan-Noël Thon.

   The institute welcomes scholars working with any and all type of narrative form or function, be that verbal or non-verbal, fictive or non-fictive, spontaneous or artificial, and presents researchers from fields such as postclassical narratology, narrative inquiry, rhetorical narrative theory, cognitive narrative theory and transmedial approaches.

 Deadline for application is April 20. 2017.


 All the best,

Stefan Iversen
