Call for papers
It is open, until July 31, the call for papers for the Colloquium Narrative, Media and Cognition
The Narrative, Media and Cognition Colloquium is now in its fifth edition – after having started at the Minho University in 2014, passed by the Portuguese Catholic University in 2015, the Porto University in 2016 and in 2017 by the Beira Interior University.
The 2018 edition, which will take place in 9 and 10 November, will be hosted by the CIAC –Research Center, at the Algarve University and thus it will be another opportunity to promote the usual reflection and discussion around a subject so fruitful and inexhaustible, located at the crossroads between various scientific areas.
If the starting point are the narratives in the broadest sense, the central role of the media in this process will be analyzed, both in terms of the means of circulation of the narratives and as promoters of new narrative structures based on their own languages that compose them.
Thus, the Organizing Committee of the Fifth Narrative, Media and Cognition Colloquium invites all interested parties to submit communication proposals (20 minutes) related to the thematic areas defined.
Narrative and communication;
Narrative in the cinema, videogames, interactive art, intermedia and transmedia;
New poetics and narrative structures (non-linear and multilinear models, hybridity);
Role of the narrative in cognition and organization of knowledge;
Historical, social and political narratives (analysis of myths, historiographic methods, discourses of collective identity and alterity, utopias and social dystopias, etc.);
Narratives and cultures at the margins;
Ethics, fake news and post-truth;
Other related areas.
At the end of the Colloquium, the CITAR Journal will organize a special issue dedicated to the topic “Narratives, Media and Cognition” where the selected papers will be published.
