[ecrea] CFP: Winter School "Transmedial Narratology: Theories and Methods"

Fri Jul 31 13:12:27 GMT 2015

*Call for Papers**
Transmedial Narratology: Theories and Methods
**Winter School at the Graduate Academy*

*of the University of Tuebingen, Germany*

*February 23 to February 26, 2016*

Narratives are everywhere. Whenever we read a novel or a comic, watch a
film in the cinema or an episode of our favorite series on television,
or play the latest singleplayer video game, we are engaging with
narrative media. Likewise, intermedial adaptations and transmedial
entertainment franchises are, at their core, narrative forms. Against
this background, the Winter School “Transmedial Narratology: Theories
and Methods” is concerned with how narratives across media can be
analyzed in the context of a “media-conscious” narratology that has
continually expanded its domain “beyond the literary text” during the
past few decades.

To complement a number of keynotes concerned with the theoretical and
methodological foundation of such a transmedial narratology as well as
with the specification of its theories and methods with regard to
conventionally distinct media such as pictures, instrumental music,
digital multimodal literature, comics, theatrical performances, films,
television series, or video games, we warmly invite additional
contributions to the program in the form of short 15 minute papers that
will be presented and discussed as part of a series of themed workshops
(for further information regarding the keynote and workshop topics, see
the attached PDF of the program).

Please send an*abstract of 200 words* and a *100-word bio* via email (as
a PDF or Word-Document) to
<mailto:(transmedialnarratology /at/>(transmedialnarratology /at/*n**o
later than October 30, 2015*. Preference will be given to papers that
have some connection to the remainder of the Winter School program (see
the attached PDF). For MA and PhD students whose papers are accepted,
*accommodation grants *of up to 500.- € covering the cost of a hotel
room for the duration of the Winter School (but not the travel costs)
are available. This Winter School is supported by the Institutional
Strategy of the University of Tuebingen (DFG, ZUK 63).
