Abstract [en]

The overarching aim of the paper is to contribute knowledge on fiction in use. The paper deals with the temporal relations between fictional duration and experienced duration (cf. Genette, 1988). More specifically, the paper gives insight in how cinema- and theatregoers use pace as a value measure. The analysed empirical material consists of recordings of naturally-occurring conversations in theatre pauses and at cafés after seeing a movie. In the study, discursive psychology (Edwards & Potter, 1992) is used on reader-reception data. This  approach is called discursive reception studies (Eriksson Barajas & Aronsson, 2009). Such approach provides possibilities to analyse the role of social interaction in the co-construction of the “reading” of a fictional oeuvre. An initial result is that cinema- and theatregoers orient towards emotions, temporalities and narrative pace. Examples of how a long film can be experienced as having had a short duration and vice versa will be presented.
