Workshop on Fiction and Narrative across Media, organized by Emar Maier ([email protected]) and Merel Semeijn ([email protected]) to mark the end of the NWO Vidi project The Language of Fiction and Imagination. It will take place in Groningen, September 29-30, 2022. 


Topics of interest include any philosophical and linguistic topics related to fiction (fictional truth/reference, imagination, pretense, fiction-making speech acts, etc) or narrative (unreliable narration, coherence, perspective, attributing mental states, etc), and with a special focus on how these categories interact with differences of modality/media (signed, spoken, written, pictorial, movies, videogames).
