This one-day workshop will focus on questions of methodology about the remit of fiction in the transmission of memory. Scholars from across the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures and Prof. Robert Gordon (Cambridge) will bring case studies from their own current research to discuss in a translingual and transdisciplinary environment. Case studies relate to – but are not limited to – literary accounts of personal memories, mnemonic techniques, memory of historical facts, post-Revolutionary narratives, post-Auschwitz poetics, autofiction, autobiography, post-traumatic accounts. The Masterclass is held in conjunction with the "Memory, Commemoration, and Uses of the Past" research cluster at CASiLaC.
