19.9.-12.12.2023 Narrative Studies Seminar Programme (Fall 2023)

Narrative Studies Seminar
Fall 2023

Join us this fall as Research Centre Narrare’s interdisciplinary Narrative Studies Seminar continues.

The Narrative Studies Seminar brings together researchers from different fields studying narratives at Tampere University. The aim of the seminar is to allow for a multi- and interdisciplinary discussion on data, methods, theories, and the state of narrative research. Individual sessions consist of an introductory presentation (up to 30 min) and general discussion.

The seminar is a hybrid event: participants can join on site, or online via Zoom (Link). (Meeting ID: 668 4700 7494 Passcode: 045076)
