PROJECT NARRATIVE SUMMER INSTITUTE
June 9 - 20, 2014
The Ohio State University,
The Project Narrative Summer Institute (PNSI) was a two-week intensive study of core concepts and issues in narrative theory. The focus for summer 2014 was Queer and Feminist Narrative Theories: Interdisciplinary Methodologies. PNSI was co-directed by Robyn Warhol, Arts & Humanities Distinguished Professor of English, and Amy Shuman, Professor of English, Anthropology, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Director of Disability Studies. The goal of developing new transdisciplinary methodologies for teaching and research was pursued. The cohort of scholars accepted for 2014 included specialists in such fields as library science, clinical psychology, medicine, digital media, criminology, design, folklore, popular culture, and international human rights as well as literary studies from all over the U.S., as well as Ireland, Canada, Australia, and Japan. Dr Lovell’s ongoing project has a focus on embodied cognition in literary texts with a particular focus on affect.
