Interdisziplinarität als Anspruch und in Wirklichkeit. Narratologische Institutionen zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts

This contribution provides a survey of narratological institutions in Europe and North America. The term “narratological institution” is taken to mean an organization that is devoted to supporting research in narratological matters by supplying researchers with informational structures such as web resources, the organization of workshops and conferences, newsletters and so on. We conclude with a general remark about the self-characterization of these projects, which – almost unanimously – emphasizes their transdisciplinary orientation.
