contact email: 
nicola.parsons@usyd.edu.au or kate.mitchell@anu.edu.au

Since the emergence of self-consciously fictional forms in the late seventeenth century, the boundary between literary and historical techniques for representing the past has been both permeable and contested. Readers have long been the focus of rhetoric about the dangers of representing history in fiction, but their agency in negotiating this borderland has been largely overlooked.

Reading the (Re)Presented Past is an edited collection of essays that investigates the relationship between representations of the past and their real or imagined readers.
