Description

UCL IAS Lies Seminar

Medieval Fiction and Its Contraries

Dr Julie Orlemanski, Assistant Professor, Department of English, University of Chicago

When we theorise about literary fiction, we tend to define it against its contraries - against fact, truth or history; in opposition to scripture and belief; contra error and lie. This talk reflects on the 'others' of medieval fiction as both a historiographic problem and a literary-critical one, and along the way it argues for a comparative approach to the study of fiction in literary studies at large.
