The Third Workshop on Computational Models of Narrative at the 2012 Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC’2012)¬†Istanbul, Turkey (May 2012).

This paper proposes that the inclusion of culturally diverse narrative genres should be an explicit goal when developing a shared narrative corpus. We argue that narrative genres from under-represented cultures and from cultures relevant to specific applications of computational narrative research should be prioritized. We offer the example of Mexican narcocorridos as a narrative genre that satisfies both these criteria.
