ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: The Historical Fictions Research Network
2020 is a year we are likely to remember. This conference will consider how we have remembered/memorialised/narrated/represented catastrophes including war, famine, epidemic, genocide, tsunami and avalanches, natural and human made disaster; how ‘ownership’ of disasters has been claimed, how disasters have been written out or elided and how disasters have structured ethnic, national, religious, cultural, community, personal identities.
We welcome paper proposals from Archaeology, Architecture, Literature, Media, Art History, Cartography, Geography, History, Musicology, Reception Studies, Linguistics, Museum Studies, Media Studies, Politics, Re-enactment, Larping, Gaming, Transformative Works, Gender, Race, Queer studies and others.
We welcome paper proposals across historical periods, with ambitious, high-quality, inter-disciplinary approaches and new methodologies that will support research into larger trends and which will lead to more theoretically informed understandings of the mode across historical periods, cultures and languages.
This year we are using a form. Please submit papers to the Paper Proposal Form: https://forms.gle/aSV1fKYJ7fes6oy97
Deadline, 30th September.
