Appel de conférences – « Historical Fictions Research Network » – 1 septembre 2023

Appel de conférences pour le colloque annuel « Historical Fictions Research Network », Université de Malmö, Suède, 23-24 février 2023.

« For the 2024 conference, HFRN seeks to engage in scholarly discussions on the topic of Adaptation in historical fictions.

What happens when well-known historical narratives are adapted for present-day audiences, or are transformed into another genre or medium? Historical fictions induce questions about mediated heritage and collective memories and problematize processes of canonization and appropriations in local as well and global contexts (Cartmell, Hunter and Whelehan 2000). The term “classics” brings up discussions on claims about originals and copies, challenged by the idea of every mediation as one of a kind (Hutcheon 2012). Debates on what constitutes originals, models and adaptations raise questions on authenticity, eye-catching aspects when dealing with historical fiction. A central issue is how the afterlives and appropriations of historical canon and established narratives in history-writing are transformed into new generations of historical fictions. »
