The Project Narrative Summer Institute (PNSI) is a two-week workshop on the Ohio
State University Columbus campus that offers faculty and advanced graduate students
in any discipline the opportunity for an intensive study of core concepts and
issues in narrative theory. The focus for summer 2014 will be Queer and Feminist
Narrative Theories: Interdisciplinary Methodologies. Institute Directors: PNSI
2014 will be co-directed by OSU faculty members Robyn Warhol, Arts &
Humanities Distinguished Professor of English, and Amy Shuman, Professor of
English, Anthropology, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Director
of Disability Studies. The Institute draws on the co-directors’ interdisciplinary
training and research experience to recombine foundational queer and feminist
texts in social sciences, literary theory, and narratology, with the goal of
developing new transdisciplinary methodologies for teaching and research.
Scholars in all humanities and social science fields are welcome.
