From the trial of Marie/Marin le Marcis (1601) to the esthetics of the monstrueux in Pantagruel (1532) and Phèdre (1677) to the shifting literary optic of Jacques le Fataliste et son maître (1796), questions of hybridity, duality, and paradox have remained central to development of the Early Modern literary canon and its related philosophical principles. In keeping with this year’s MMLA convention theme of “Duality, Doubles and Doppelgängers”, papers investigating the complex relationship between the notions of duality, plurality and hybridity will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Historical Novel Society Australasia 2019 Conference

25-27 October 2019, Rydalmere Campus, Western Sydney University.

What counts as an historical novel is increasingly up for grabs: in terms of period (what counts as ‘the past’—and how past is past?), and the porosity of the boundaries of genre (viz. how historical is historical fantasy?).
