3 rd ENN Conference and General Meeting
Emerging Vectors of Narratology:
Toward Consolidation or Diversification?
Paris, March 29-30, 2013

The 3 rd ENN conference, held at the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris, was organized under the auspices of the Center for Research on the Arts and Language (CNRS-EHESS) by John Pier and Philippe Roussin with support from the City of Paris, the Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales, the Institut Universitaire de France, the University of Strasbourg, the University of Tours and the Maison française d’Oxford. Bringing together some 135 lecturers from 35 countries from Europe and beyond, it attested not only to the continuing growth of the ENN (now numbering more than 560 members) but also to the vitality of narratology in contemporary research and its interactions with fields beyond literature.


Illustrating the ubiquity of narrative in all modes of cultural expression and demonstrating the flexible, multifaceted research in narratology throughout Europe, the 26 groups of lectures dealt with topics ranging from Narrativity and Visual Media, to Narrative in History, Cinema, Narratology: Method or Heuristics?, Narratology and the Middle Ages, Narrative Borders, Narrative in Cultural Space and more. The six keynote lectures explored new perspectives on narrative sequence (Raphaël Baroni, University of Lausanne), the narratives of natural history (José Ángel García Landa, University of Zaragoza), computational narratology (Jan Christoph Meister, Hamburg University), the “limits of narrativity” (Brian Richardson, University of Maryland), narrativity as a form of representing mental representations (Jean-Marie Schaeffer, EHESS/CNRS) and the relations between contextual and formalist approaches (Dan Shen, Peking University).  


The seven panels (Visualizing Narrative Times; Notes Toward an Embodied Narratology; When myths become reality: At the crossroads oforganizational culture, stories, mind; Digital Flânerie and the Mapping of American Narratives of Paris; Translating Narrative Theory; Narrativity and Intermediality; Metalepsis out of Bounds) and the two workshops (What Kind of Narrative Theory for
Musical Narratology?; Narratology of Greco-Roman Myths and their Pragmatics) opened up new directions for the study of narrative in intermedial and interdisciplinary contexts. In addition, lectures were also given by the 24 students who took part in the pre-conference doctoral seminar.

The pre-conference doctoral seminar (March 27-28) was directed by Per Krogh Hansen (University of Southern Denmark) and Wolf Schmid (Hamburg University). Twenty-four doctoral students attended the seminar, discussed their research topics
and gave lectures in special sessions at the conference.


A selection of articles from the conference will be published in two volumes of the Narratologia series at de Gruyter (Emerging Vectors of Narratology, edited by John Pier and Philippe Roussin, and Paradigms of Narratology, edited by Per Krogh Hansen and Wolf Schmid) and online in a special issue of the Amsterdam International Electronic Journal for Cultural Narratology (AJCN).


In addition, a collection of unedited lectures and articles coming out of the conference will be published on the ENN homepage.

In June videos of the keynote lectures and of several of the parallel sessions will be made available online.

Plenary session III, Room A (March 30, 2013)

The Story behind any Story: Evolution, Historicity, and Narrative Mapping

“The narratives of the world are numberless”; yet, all stories may be seen as chapters of a single story. Evolutionary approaches to literary and cultural phenomena (E. O. Wilson, Joseph Carroll) have led to a growing awareness that these literary and cultural phenomena are best accounted for within a consilient disciplinary framework. From this consilient standpoint, human modes of communication must be contextualized as situated historical phenomena, and
history as such is to be placed within the wider context of the evolution of human societies and of life generally (what is often called “big history”). Using the notions of “narrative mapping” and “narrative anchoring,” the present lecture aims to draw from the aforementioned theoretical outlook a series of conclusions relevant to narratology, in particular to the narratological conceptualization of time. Cultural conceptions of big history underpin the production, the reception and the critical analysis of any specific narrative, as well as any narrativizing strategy, in the sense that these conceptions provide both a general ideational background to the experiences depicted in the narratives, and a mental framework in which to situate (e.g., historicize) the narrative genres used in the depiction.
