How does literature represent the past? This unit introduces students to key theoretical frameworks for interrogating the complex and contentious relationship between 'fiction' and 'history.' Students have the opportunity to discuss 'fictions of history' from a range of historical, cultural, and national contexts. Texts will range from literary classics to popular genre fiction to postmodern tours de force.
