Senior Seminar

Topic: Contemporary Forms of Autofiction This course will explore the hybrid, dual notion of autofiction, which establishes a rich and complex dialogue between the opposite concepts of autobiography and fiction, truth and lies, belief and disbelief, often blurring their supposed clear-cut frontiers. Through a selection of contemporary literary productions, which may also include films and photographs, we will analyze a variety of ways in which the writing of the self can pervade fictional narratives.

Prerequisite: permission of the department. 4 points.
