Narrative Matters

An International, Interdisciplinary Conference on Narrative Research,|
Perspectives, and Approaches across the Humanities and Social Sciences


Since 2002, the biennial Narrative Matters conferences have brought together theorists and researchers, practitioners and students from a variety of disciplines and contexts to explore the complex role of narrative in countless dimensions of human life. While delegates may entertain a range of definitions as to what “narrative” is, these conferences have contributed significantly to the narrative turn across the human sciences.
