6th ESA Conference – Murcia, Spain, 25-28 September 2003
Research Network ‘Biographical Perspectives on European Societies’
Call for Papers for session:
‘Extending the Possibilities for Presentation & Dissemination of Narrative Studies’
Convener: Kip Jones De Montfort University
The emerging synthesis of the arts and social sciences present challenges to the methodological-philosophical foundations of knowledge. At the very heart of this matter is knowledge transfer. The need for innovation in dissemination of detailed descriptive information has, until recently, been neglected in the social sciences. As collage-makers, narrators of narrations, dream weavers—narrative researchers are natural allies of the arts and humanities.
Abstracts are invited that grapple with extending the possibilities of presentation and dissemination of narrative studies. Presentations using tools from the arts and humanities are especially encouraged for this conference thread. The use of other media, in addition to traditional papers, is welcomed. Possibilities include, but are not limited to, performance, dance, film, video, audio, graphic arts, new media (CD ROM, web-based production), poetry and so forth. Presentations may deal with the theoretical, methodological, ethical and mechanical issues of using such media or, simply be a presentation that uses one of the media as an example of narrative as performance.
Your proposal should be sent as an ABSTRACT in the following format:
An Abstract of no more than 200 words
Your preferred session:Presentation & Dissemination
Abstracts should be sent by 28 February 2003 to BOTH the Chair of the ‘Biography’ research network and the session convener.
