Conference | Framing Narratives: New Perspectives on Premodern Textual Production in Arabic

Nov 25, 2020 - Nov 27, 2020


A conference organised by Beatrice Gründler (EXC 2020, RA 3) and Johannes Stephan (FUB, "Kalīla and Dimna - AnonymClassic", ERC).

This conference invites discussions on how to theoretically engage with the concept of narrative framing in premodern Arabic literature and adjacent literary traditions. Our aim is to develop a comprehensive definition of "framing narratives" beyond a merely descriptive perspective, and to interrogate its function within textual production. This conference will be held in English.

Further updates to follow.
