Launch of the "living handbook of narratology"

The Interdisciplinary Center for Narratology (ICN), University of Hamburg, presents the

living handbook of narratology (

Within the framework of an innovative cooperation between Hamburg University Press, the editor of Hamburg University's Library Staats- und Universitaetsbibliothek Hamburg (SUB), and the academic publishing house de Gruyter, the ICN has developed an interactive narratological handbook. The Open Access publication makes available all 32 articles contained in the original print version, the Handbook of Narratology, edited in 2009 by de Gruyter. But the living handbook is not only just one more e-publication, since it continuously expands its original content base by adding new articles on further concepts and theories fundamental to narratology, and to the study of narrative in general. The living handbook project has been granted funds until 2012 by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) in the context of their programme "Literaturversorgungs- und Informationssysteme (LIS)" and is also financially supported by the University of Hamburg.
For further information, we refer you to an article written by Isabella Meinecke (Hamburg University Press) and published in the UHH Hochschulmagazin (May 2010).
