ACLA 2019 panel - Documented Figments: The Critical Value of Reimagining Facts in Biofiction

Since biofiction is gaining legitimacy as a literary category, refining its theoretical framework becomes crucial. One of the main aspects of this process is to understand the uses of a novelist’s freedom to create meaning by altering or complementing the information provided by historical documents. It is our claim that, far from entailing an unfamiliarity with sources or an arbitrary play, the freedoms that biofiction takes are strategic. They express the assimilation of facts into a narrative thread capable of revealing tangled or unspeakable truths that the documents can only suggest, and of inserting these truths into the crevices of dominant narratives.

Travel, Movement and (Im)Mobilities
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday 13th April 2019 – Sunday 14th April 2019
Bruges, Belgium

Travel, the daily movements of people (and animals), our mobility and ability to traverse spaces and places is the cornerstone of life in the 21st Century. We take it for granted, we presume it to be a feature of daily life and assume it to be a right which belongs to all of us. But whilst ‘travel’ appears to be initially straightforward, even a cursory glance quickly reveals an intricate, nuanced and multi-layered phenomenon which, even now, we struggle to fully understand or appreciate.
