The Laboratory of Narrative Research (LNR) is a teaching and research unit that is part of the School of English at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

This is a hands-on, location-aware workshop inspired by the premise that places and stories are inseparable. Any space forms a narrative tissue made up of differing stories, written, re-written, over-written, silenced or erased.

Dr. Michaela Filiou
This seminar focuses on the scientific narrative per se, as less a hard-wired, unambiguous story of fixed making and more as malleable narrative in process, told and shaped anew in tune with audience or purpose…
Mr. George Stremplis and Dr. Katerina Delikonstantinidou
The emergence of various biotechnological interventions (e.g. genetic testing, “designer babies,” etc.), along with theories imagining a posthuman mode of being using speculative biotechnologies, demand that we understand more about the convergence of bioethical issues and current social reality…

Narrative Crossings 2022
a series of workshops on narrative across borders of difference
I feel grateful for having experienced something real instead of one more ordinary Monday evening. I feel complete having experienced joy, embarrassment, emotion in a collective haven. I feel lucky to have met beautiful people and worked with them. I feel!
It was an amazing experience and a lovely community to exchange ideas in. Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity. Looking forward to further seminars of the Laboratory.
I managed to “touch” and feel—at least for a while—the beauty of theater. An unprecedented experience for me!
A great experience that achieved balance between the theoretical part regarding the necessary information about podcast narratives and the actual experiencing of the medium. The input that was provided instigated fruitful dialogue and a very friendly and pleasant atmosphere. Definitely a thought-provoking and worthwhile seminar to introduce somebody to the world of podcast narratives. Thank you so much!!!
Tonight I, the most practical, organized and fixed-in-my-ways person that I know, have managed to escape my comfort zone. I’ve been offered the chance to attend to the needs of my body, not of my mind again. Thank you for this opportunity. You are both amazing, keep inspiring us. DO NOT HOLD BACK!
It was a brilliant seminar!! Dr Karalakos was so inspiring, motivational and he is the kind of teacher that we should all aspire to be! The way he morphed his presentation into an interactive activity was both very enjoyable and easier to follow! Hopefully, we’ll be meeting with him again soon! Thank you so much for all the important lessons!
A very informative seminar that touched upon a heavy subject in a unique and creative way. Dr. Eleftheriou’s perspective and advice on using our personal experiences, however insignificant they might appear, as a source of inspiration was highly appreciated. It was a very pleasant and intimate experience that I hope can be repeated!
When I registered to this workshop, I was skeptical as to how we could practically teach such serious issues as bioethical ones in a classroom. However, the facilitators provided as with a huge variety of examples, drawn from Marvel superhero comics, classic literature, Greek myths from antiquity and even from very recent films and works of fiction! The workshop was so enlightening and gave me so many ideas about how to make learning a transformative experience.
After having attended the seminar I found the experience quite enlightening and very informative. I was especially intrigued by the Graphic Novel incorporated in educational regimes to communicate bioethics and relative subject matters. I would be interested in attending more workshops or lectures of the same field of research as well as of Posthumanism in general. It might be a field of research that interests me in the future. Thank you for having me included.
