Message 2: 6th International Conference on Narrative - Call

Date: Fri, 28 Mar 97 16:24:33 -0500
From: Joachim Knuf <>
Subject: 6th International Conference on Narrative - Call



The Sixth International Conference on Narrative
October 10 - 12, 1997
Department of Communication / School of Journalism and
Telecommunications University of Kentucky

The University of Kentucky Department of Communication and the School
of Journalism and Telecommunications invite your submissions to the
Sixth International Conference on Narrative, to be held Friday,
October 10, to Sunday, October 12, 1997, in Lexington, Kentucky.
 The theme of the 1997 conference, TALKING - WRITING -
BROADCASTING, suggests topics addressing the diverse ways in which
narrative is used in general interpersonal, organizational, and
mediated contexts. In addition to the broad range of contributions
always represented at the conference, this year's special program
track focuses on print and broadcast media narrative: news, features,
op/ed, talk show, sitcom, sports, drama, animation, human interest,
and various other information and entertainment formats.
 As in previous years, we would like to bring together scholars
from a wide range of disciplines, including journalism, media studies,
cultural and critical studies, education, psychology, literatures and
languages, communication, linguistics, anthropology, sociology,
folklore, social work, medicine, art history, history, women's studies
and all others interested in narrative. Theoretical and methodological
contributions of all persuasions are as welcome as studies of
narrative in different contexts. The conference language is English;
data sessions should be conducted in the most appropriate language.
 The International Conference on Narrative is a highly
productive working event. Four presentation formats are offered;
please indicate your choice and any technological requirements on the
title page of your submission.
 (1) Research papers will be scheduled for panel sessions;
panels are most suitable for theoretical or programmatic
topics. Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes. Please mark your
submission 'Panel.'
 (2) Posters will be set up and remain on display for the
duration of the conference. This format allows the presentation of
larger amounts of research data and provides a more individual setting
for discussion without time constraints. Please mark your submission
 (3) Participants who travel with major data sets they intend
to work on in a small-group setting may wish to reserve the special
meeting room available for this purpose for up to two hours. The
number of data sessions is limited and early submission of your
proposal is suggested. Please mark your submission 'Data session.'
 (4) Following the great success of this format at last year's
conference, three round-table discussions will focus respectively on
theoretical, methodological, and ethical issues described by the
conference theme. Up to six programmatic statements of no more than
five minutes will be followed by a round-table discussion with
audience participation. Please mark your submission accordingly.
 Information on special events, keynote lectures, etc. will be
sent to you after receipt of your submission. Up-to-date conference
information, as well as the 1996 program, is also available at the
conference web site,

Submissions are restricted to extended abstracts not exceeding 1000
words; they must be accompanied by a briefer abstract of no more than
50 words, which will be included in the program. Please also provide
your e-mail address, which will be listed in the program to facilitate
preconference discussion between panel members. Please send two
hardcopies or one electronic copy of your submission to the conference
