Plenary Speakers: Jonathan Culler, Mary Poovey, Elaine Scarry
The eighteenth annual conference of the Society for the Study of Narrative, dedicated to the investigation of narrative, its elements, techniques, and forms; its relations to other modes of discourse; and its power in cultures past and present. The Conference generally features 250-300 participants.
We welcome papers or panels on all aspects of narrative theory and practice, from any genre, period, nationality, discipline, or medium. We encourage literary subjects (including poetry, pre-modern narrative, and film), as well as cross-cultural and interdisciplinary topics (including folklore, history, law, philosophy, and science).
Presentations should be fifteen to twenty minutes long and in English. Conference participants must join the Society for the Study of Narrative.
