ASL Launches new DFG-funded Research Network on "Narrative Liminality"

American Studies Leipzig is launching a new DFG-funded Research Network. The research initiative aims to explore the symbolic operations that take place in the liminal area between narrative and other symbolic forms (such as data/bases, play, ritual, etc). It thus seeks to complement American studies' interest in narrative, surging since the narrative turn, by an interest in other symbolic forms.
