CfP: Historical Fictions Research Network Online Conference

The Historical Fictions Research Network aims to create a place for the discussion of all aspects of the construction of the historical narrative. The focus of the conference is the way we construct history, the narratives and fictions people assemble and how. We welcome both academic and practitioner presentations.
For the 2023 conference, HFRN seeks to engage in scholarly discussions on the significance and function of Values in historical fictions. Values of past and present times present an important feature in historical fictions, they are used to familiarise the past, to assert or question our own culture and society, they help later generations to explain and shape the future.

Paper proposals are due 1st September 2022. They should consist of a title, and up to 250 words abstract. The decisions on acceptance will be communicated by 1st November 2022 at the latest. All papers will be delivered live and we will schedule across time-zones. Each presentation will be of 20 minutes followed by an interaction session.
