Dear Colleagues,

We must sadly confirm the rescheduling of the 9th International Conference on Language, Literature and Culture and Crossroads III Conference due to the ongoing COVID-19 developments. While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests and community very seriously.

Having spent the past few months preparing for the conference we are genuinely upset and disappointed not to be able to host you at this time. We want to thank you for your interest in our event and we fully intend to host it in June 2021. Your registration will automatically be applied to the rescheduled event. We will get back to you with more information on specific dates in the nearest future.

Biofiction as World Literature / La Biofiction comme littérature mondiale - Leuven, 29-31 October 2020

Biofiction (literature that takes a real biography as its point of departure) is powered by what Colm Tóibín has recently called “the anchored imagination”, which grants the fictional narrative a certain ambiguous (almost duplicitous) credibility. But what do biographical novels mean as world-making vehicles? Is the recent boom in stories that rely on the real past, yet project contemporary visions upon it, only a sign that we are trying to build a coherent world-image of centuries past, or is it also an attempt to bring into being a new way of seeing and/or being in the present?
