Framing Narratives

Framing Narratives

Organised by Beatrice Gründler (EXC 2020, Research Area 3: "Future Perfect") and Johannes Stephan (Freie Universität Berlin, "Kalīla and Dimna - AnonymClassic", ERC).

Series of events in collaboration with the ERC funded project Kalīla and Dimna – AnonymClassic.

This series of events 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. The events will be held in English.

The lecture and subsequent discussion will also be streamed online via Webex. For registration, see link above.

The series will be continued with an international online-workshop on 26 and 27 November 2020
