Project Narrative Summer Institute (PNSI) is a two-week workshop at Ohio State University that offers faculty and advanced graduate students in any discipline the opportunity for an intensive study of core concepts and issues in narrative theory. The focus for summer 2017 will be Queer and Feminist Narrative Theories: Interdisciplinary Methodologies and will be held from Monday, July 10 through Friday, July 21. More details available at https://projectnarrative.osu.edu/programs/summer-institute .

PNSI 2017 is appropriate for faculty and grad students in any discipline from the U.S. and abroad whose work would benefit from an in-depth discussion of narratology inflected by feminist and queer theory. Mornings are devoted to seminar-style discussion and afternoons to writing and collaboration.  We invite participants to bring a project (an article, a syllabus, a lesson plan, a dissertation prospectus, a book proposal, a chapter) that would be enriched by a deeper knowledge of queer and feminist narratology. Dr. Amy Shuman is a linguist, folklorist, and specialist in both disability studies and human rights; Dr. Robyn Warhol specializes in narrative fiction and popular culture, specifically novels, graphic memoir, serials, and TV. Readings and discussions will range across all these fields, and participants will be able to work one-on-one with the co-directors to discuss individual projects. 

To Apply:

Applicants should send, to projectnarrative@osu.edu, a current CV, a short description of the proposed project (no longer than a single-spaced page), and one letter of recommendation to Project Narrative by May 15, 2017. 

Please feel free to write to Robyn Warhol at warhol.1@osu.edu or to Amy at shuman.1@osu.edu if you have any questions.
