Plenary spot at Narrative 2021

I was truly grateful for this opportunity to speak at the Narrative 2021 conference in one of the plenary spots, and see some colleagues in the process. It was a real highlight.

In my paper, “Confessions of a Narratypical and the Burden of Embodied Simulation,” I reflect on the utility of embodied simulation as an explanatory mechanism for narrative fiction in both print and digital media, and outline some of the challenges such theories pose for narrative theory in general.
