The first workshop this year for the CMods Research Strand on Complexity in the Humanities will be based on work in progress from three contributors to the volume Narrating Complexity, currently in preparation by members of the NarCS group. They are:
Maria Poulaki (University of Surrey): Emergent causality in complex films and complex systems
Erika Fülöp (University of Lancaster): Verbal narratives as/and complex systems: The uses and limits of an analogy
Romana Turina (University of York): Narrative experiences of history and complex systems
Our three presenters represent a range of disciplinary perspectives across the humanities (respectively, film studies, literature and historiography/digital media), which will provide a broad base for discussion of the ways in which humanities disciplines can get hold of the issues of systemic complexity.
