The unit offers the opportunity to discuss in depth a wide range of literary and multi-media historical fiction texts (for example novels, film, television, and video-games) in the context of recent literary and historiographical debates. We will explore the theoretical, political and practical concerns that drive the intersection of history and fiction in literary practice and the literariness of screen and interactive media. Classes will encourage students to discuss both their critical and theoretical essays and/or their creative work. Texts and media may vary from year to year.
