This panel applies recent developments in the field of narratology and Narrative analysis to reexamine the genre of autobiography in Europe during the long eighteenth century. In a variety of national, confessional, and cultural contexts autobiographical writing exploded in the second half of the seventeenth century and even entered into the sphere of literary production with the growing popularity of autobiographical novels at the close of the eighteenth century. In particular, we invite papers that explore the structures, codes, perspectives, and communicative implications of autobiographical texts, from conversion narratives to life histories and memoirs.
Please submit proposals of 200-250 words via email.
