Narrative Imagination: Stereotypes & Beyond
a lecture by Sofie Verraest

An exploration of the inner workings of the narrative imagination and its influence on how we experience and imagine spaces. Starting from the idea that we think in stories, we uncover a few recurring stereotypes and delve into a number of spatial and architectural projects.

This lecture will be preceded by a workshop between 14h30 - 17h30 (only for PhD students). The workshop focuses on literary and narrative techniques that can be used when researching and describing places, objects, events.
