Narrative Matters Conference 08 Call for Papers and Presentations

Narrative Matters 2008: An Interdisciplinary Conference on Narrative Research, Perspectives, Practices and Issues

"Storying our World"

May 7-10, 2008
University of Toronto
Call for Papers and Presentations
Deadline: September 30, 2007
"As humans we continually story our experiences. We construct our world through our personal, community, institutional and political narratives. The 2008 Narrative Matters conference theme aims to explore all of these narrative sites. Narrative continues to gain recognition as something people do, use and research. The Narrative Matters conference provides a meeting place for people interested in doing, using and researching narrative in diverse contexts and fields. The blurring and crossing of boundaries catalyzes discussion and inquiry at Narrative Matters conferences. We invite proposals for papers, presentations or participatory sessions on a variety of topics around the practice, use and research of narrative."
