Interdisciplinary Centre for Narrative Studies

Dear Richard Walsh,

I am a Spanish researcher, a senior lecturer in English at the University of Zaragoza, with a long-standing interest in narrative studies. I see your Interdisciplinary Centre for Narrative Studies at York seems to welcome international contacts, both with individual scholars and with institutions in the field of narrative theory and narratology. I wonder if you might list me among the associate members in your website,

 —or whether there is any specific requirement I should fulfil. One thing I may contribute is, I see there are no researchers from Spain listed there, or indeed from any country in the Spanish-language sphere. I do not have many colleagues working specifically on narratology or narrative theory, but I do have some contacts with academic societies and individual researchers with interdisciplinary interests in narrative, and I am a bit of a hyperactive one-man institution myself. Here are some of my ongoing projects:

A Bibliography of Literary Theory, Criticism and Philology (with quite a heavy emphasis on prose fiction and narratology)

Evolutionary Narratology - two related facebook sites, one in English, another in English and Spanish:

—researchers from the Centre for Narrative Studies are welcome to visit and contribute.

El Gran Teatro del Mundo / This Huge Stage - on drama, dramatism and real-life theatrics:

Retrospection: Perspectives on Narrative Theory, Hindsight, Hindsight Bias, and the Dynamics of Narrativity.

—plus many other websites and blogs on criticism, theory, narrative and narratology, etc. E.g.:

Narratology (Vanity Fea):
Any of those would be fine as a link in your Associate Researchers Page, if you decide to include me (I'd be much obliged). Or if you prefer an institutional page at the University of Zaragoza:

I look forward to hearing from you, and to keep abreast of the activities at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Narrative Studies.
Best regards,

José Angel García Landa
