International Conference organized by the Nordic Network of Narrative Studies
University of Tampere, May 26–28, 2011
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.
