“The Novel and the Archive”
May 19, 2023 @ 8:00 am - May 20, 2023 @ 5:00 pm
Co-sponsored by the Center for German and European Studies.
The bi-annual conference of the Society for Novel Studies (SNS) forwards their mission of examining the role of fiction through a focus on aspects of the novel as a genre. Through the theme, “The Novel and the Archive,” the UW-Madison conference aims to bring together scholars of Race, Ethnicity, and Indigeneity, and Migration Studies in conversation with scholars of Holocaust, Exile, and Refugee Studies. Drawing on their areas of research expertise, the organizers seek to provide a forum to decompartmentalize the above-mentioned fields, thereby initiating and facilitating new directions in the studies of the novel for the twenty-first century.
More information forthcoming.
