A Series of Events

A collaboration of Cluster of Excellence 2020 «Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective» – Research Area 3, «Future Perfect» and the ERC funded project Kalīla and Dimna – AnonymClassic.

This series of events invites discussions on how to theoretically engage with the concept of narrative framing in premodern Arabic literature and adjacent literary traditions. Our aim is to develop a comprehensive definition of «framing narratives» beyond a merely descriptive perspective, and to interrogate its function within textual production. The events will be held in English.

The series starts with a public lecture and a workshop 26 and 27 November 2020.
