ENN6, organized by RISEBA University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with the European Narratology Network (ENN, www.narratology.net), will addresses the fusion of new technologies with unreliable, paradoxical, or disturbing narratives, which draw readers and viewers into a story, geospatially and cognitively, by means of blurring the boundaries between real and virtual spaces or alternative ones. The ultimate aim of the conference is to extend the boundaries of narratological discourse, in both its classical and post-classical conceptions, within the framework of the technological diversification of virtual reality. In addition, the conference is open to papers on all topics connected with the study of narrative in either texts or the media as well as with questions of narratological methodology.
The best selected works will be published in a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to architecture, design and audiovisual media arts from the Baltic Sea region, published once a year by RISEBA University's Faculty of Media and Communication and Faculty of Architecture and Design.
The topics listed below are meant as a guideline for possible contributions:
Theory and methodology of transmedial narratology in the framework of cinematic VR
Archaeology of immersive narrative systems
Cognitive narratology in neurocinematics
Expanding vectors of narratology
Gaslighting in virtual reality
Preconference Doctoral Seminar: TBA
In conjunction with the 6th International Conference of the European Narratology Network, a preconference doctoral seminar on virtual vectors of narratology will be held. At the end of the course, the participants will receive a diploma. Prospective participants are asked to send a 500-word description of their doctoral research together with their résumés and institutional affiliation via the registration form
