Seeking one more paper to complete a panal which will be proposed for the 2001 AHA conference. We are looking for a paper that uses some form of fiction, and most especially historical fiction, to open a discussion on the relationship between fiction and history. Tentative panel title is "Fiction as History or History as Fiction?: The Place of Imaginative Literature in Historical Writing." The two other papers are "George Eliot's Contribution to Nineteenth-Century Historiography" and "Alessandro Manzoni, _The Betrothed_, and the Fabrication of a National-Historical Literature." Papers in ninteenth-century Europe are very welcome, but we are open to other time periods and geographical regions.
Due to the immediacy of the panel proposal deadline (February 15) we will need to hear from interested parties by February 13.
