Beginning Narrative Liminalities: First Workshop Meeting

Americanists from all over Germany convened in Leipzig on April 20 and 21 to inaugurate a Research Network on "Narrative Liminality." Funded by the German Research Foundation, the network serves to explore the boundaries and interrelationships between the symbolic forms of narrative, play, data, ritual, spectacle, and others. It is meant to test and advance the assumption that these forms are best understood as gradable rather than as binary, and that important cultural and symbolic work is done in the spaces where these forms meet, intersect, or overlap.
