2010 Summer School
“Fictionalizing the World?”
August 1-15, 2010 in Munich, Germany
‘Fictionalizing the World?’ is the theme for this year’s summer school, which is the third and last of a series of three summer schools focusing on the relationship between fiction and reality. The aim of this year’s summer school is to offer doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers the opportunity to explore and discuss in detail different ways in which literary texts and other works contribute to fictionalizing what we commonly regard as the ‘world’ or ‘reality’. We want to explore this complex relationship in detail in this third international summer school hosted by the PhD programme "Literature" at Munich University.
To focus discussions, we will be concentrating on four subsections:
(1) Nationalism: Fact or Fiction?
(2) Humor: Fictional Escape or Critique of Reality?
(3) Fictions of Violence
(4) Fictionalizing Colonial Encounters
Please submit a one-page abstract outlining the topic you propose to pursue for a 3,000-4,000 word essay for the summer school.
Full details of the summer school, including an application form, may be found on our website.
