Beyond Narrative: Literature, Culture, and the Borderlands of Narrativity

Date: 
10. Oct 17:00 - 12. Oct 14:00

Please join us for:

An International Conference at American Studies Leipzig
10-12 October, 2019
Beethovenstr. 6, 04107 Leipzig (University Library Lecture Hall)

This conference aims to map the borderlands of narrativity. It asks how the narrative and the non-narrative—tied to symbolic forms such as database, play, spectacle, network, or the lyric—work together in instances of cultural expression.

Prof. Crister S. Garrett (1962 - 2019)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Prof. Crister S. Garrett. We have lost a wonderful colleague, a dear friend, and an outstanding scholar. Prof. Garrett joined American Studies Leipzig in 2003, bringing a clear vision and a unique energy that transformed and shaped the institute in the years since. His passing presents an immeasurable loss to the institute, to the students, and to the larger community. We will miss him so much.
