Rethinking the Rise of Fictionality

February 3 @ 9:45 am - February 4 @ 1:00 pm

—a conference organized by Sarah Tindal Kareem, University of California, Los Angeles, and Emily Hodgson Anderson, University of Southern California The development of eighteenth-century literature, as Catherine Gallagher has so persuasively claimed, reflects a “rise of fictionality”: in her argument, readers and spectators became increasingly acclimated to the notion of fiction as non-referential—as divorced from some real-world source.

Roma Aeterna in the Middle Ages

February 9 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
feb9_carpegna_falconieri

The medieval sources produced in Rome and about Rome collectively exhibit a singular characteristic  which scholars have not yet adequately identified or addressed as a uniquely Roman feature. In contrast with most other cities and institutions, Rome and its church did not develop the diachronic relationship with their memory and territory that would have resulted in the writing of chronicles and annals. Instead, Roman historical writing adopted a synchronic approach that mirrored the conceptual structure expressed in rituals, catalogues, and…
