Meeting Description:

The conference will be devoted to issues of retelling, rewriting, and

translations and adaptations; to the discussion of how history becomes a text,
and how texts create history. Within the category of 'fiction', we invite the
discussion of traditional literary genres and film, as well as less commonly
researched text types: comic books, graphic novels, computer games and role-
playing games, blogs and websites.

- Personal and collective history, memory and identity in language and fiction
- Ideological visions of history, postcolonial perspectives and revisions
- Censorship, propaganda, power relations and re-evaluation of the past in
literary fiction and discourse
- Translation and adaptation as re-writing and re-assessment of history
- Interactive history, historical games and reenactment
- History, alternative history and future history in speculative fiction
- Perception, stylistic and textual markers of historic authenticity
- Discourses and rhetoric of historic and political change
