There is an increasing interest in narrative practices and research at VID. This seminar aims to bring together researchers and lecturers that apply narrative methods throughout VID. The seminar will start by a key note lecture of internationally renowned narrative scholar, professor Arthur W. Frank, who is also professor here at the Centre of Diaconia and Professional Practice at VID.
Professor Frank will talk about the necessity of storytelling as practice and research from his long standing career in illness narratives and medical humanities. The rest of the seminar will be dedicated to short introductory presentations of ongoing narrative projects at VID.
We invite students, researchers, and staff who are interested in narrative to attend the seminar. We particularly encourage participants to give a short presentation of their own narrative research or practice.
A final program for the seminar will be published later.
The seminar is arranged by Centre of Diaconia and Professional Practice and the research group Existential perspectives and existential competence in professional practice.
