Call for Papers
TO THINK IS TO EXPERIMENT Postgraduate Research Day,
University of East London, University Square Stratford, 29th April 2015
The Centre for Narrative Research, University of East London & NOVELLA at the UCL Institute of Education
The Centre for Narrative Research (CNR), in collaboration with NOVELLA (Narratives of Varied Everyday Lives and Linked Approaches), organise the annual Research Day for postgraduate researchers on 29th April 2015<x-apple-data-detectors://6>, at the University of East London.
This year, we invite papers focusing on narrative analytical models in the process, discussing and reflecting on applications of the analytical models, and decisions at any stage of analysis. The narrative analytical models refer to both broader epistemological approaches to analysing narratives and specific narrative models of analysis.
We are also interested in critical reflections on a challenge which postgraduate researchers tackle while using a particular analytical model, and the researcher’s strategies for getting past the challenge.
This is a call for papers for all postgraduate researchers. Participants can contribute with a paper (15-30 minutes long) or a poster. Please send an abstract (150-200 words) to Cigdem Esin, C.firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:C.email@example.com> by 10th March, 2015<x-apple-data-detectors://8>. Applicants will hear back from us by 16th March, 2015<x-apple-data-detectors://9>.
We look forward to meeting participants from all over the UK and Europe for a friendly and productive day of presentations and discussions, as we did over the past years. To ‘Think is to Experiment’ has been a narrative space for postgraduate researchers from various disciplines for fourteen years. The event has been home to stimulating presentations and intense conversations on the multiplicities in narrative-based research, approaches and experiences. The programme and abstracts from previous years can be viewed on this link https://www.uel.ac.uk/cnr/seminar/experiment/
Please note that this is a free event but places are limited.
All best wishes,
