Entire CFP Link

Our issue focusing on historical narratology will investigate the historical semantics of narrative forms by looking at representative cases. Suitable contributions for this issue include, for example, diachronic studies on the development of specific motifs, themes, genres or forms of writing, such as providence vs. contingency, the fantastic vs. the neo- fantastic, the development of unreliable narration, the development of omniscient narration, and the development of perspectival narration. Contributions can examine ancient, medieval and/or modern writing, both literary and non-literary. We also welcome systematic contributions or those reflecting the history of a discipline, which consider the possibilities and problems of a historical narratology.

We invite abstracts of approximately half a page (DIN-A4) by September 30th, 2013 at the latest. Please send your abstract, along with a brief CV, to the DIEGESIS editorial team: PD Dr. Matthias Aumüller or Dr. Filippo Smerilli (diegesis@uni-wuppertal.de). The editorial team and the editors will decide on the acceptability of proposals by November 30th, 2013. Contributions (approx. 15-20 pages) have to be submitted by June 30th, 2014. Our issue on historical narratology will be published in December 2014.
