Narratological interest

I am interested in a practical method for narrative text analysis based on narratological theory. - - In my dissertation, I worked on "Narratology and Biblical Exegesis" (Tübingen, Mohr Siebeck 2010). My main concern was to develop a comprehensive and detailed method for the analysis of narratives (setting, plot, character, perspective, reception) based on current interdisciplinary research in narratology and especially the "cognitive turn". On a number of subjects (cognitive communication model, fictional vs.
factual narrative, character analysis, reception analysis etc.) I try to provide new solutions and models also for narratological theory in general.
