The sixth MARS symposium looks towards a re-consideration of medieval and Renaissance genres of literature, with an emphasis on problematic or borderline cases where a given text belonging to a particular genre is questionable, or where problems are caused by various interpretations or definitions of the genre itself. Those genres can be roughly divided into two groups. One of them would consist of the genres that are often associated with the long period extending approximately between the years 700 and 1700, even though not all of them originate from that epoch, or are limited by it.
