☯ Full Synopsis : "In this important interdisciplinary study, Josie Gill explores how the contemporary novel has drawn upon, and intervened in, debates about race in late 20th and 21st century genetic science. Reading works by leading contemporary writers including Zadie Smith, Kazuo Ishiguro, Octavia Butler and Colson Whitehead, Biofictions demonstrates how ideas of race are produced at the intersection of science and fiction, which together create the stories about identity, racism, ancestry and kinship which characterize our understanding of race today. By highlighting the role of narrative in the formation of racial ideas in science, this book calls into question the apparent anti-racism of contemporary genetics, which functions narratively, rather than factually or objectively, within the racialized contexts in which it is embedded. In so doing, Biofictions compels us to rethink the long-asked question of whether race is a biological fact or a fiction, calling instead for a new understanding of the relationship between race, science and fiction."Article| Josie Gill| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Le projet d'une carte du roman français contemporain comportait de grands risques, mais il offrait aussi la possibilité de questionnements stimulants. Les quelque cinquante contributions ici réunies, émanant de spécialistes de tous statuts et de tous horizons, ont privilégié l'instantanéité du cliché et, par là même, visé à légitimer l'idée cartographique. La métaphore spatiale n'imposait pas de baliser tous les chemins, ni de hiérarchiser les œuvres. Le but n'était ni un palmarès (en fonction de quels critères ? !) ni un panorama complet des tendances présentes. N'existe-t-il pas déjà des prix, des synthèses et des dictionnaires ? Le volume ainsi conçu offre un état des lieux du roman depuis 1980, lacunaire on le reconnaît, complexe et diversifié on l'espère. Il s'articule autour de problématiques consubstantielles à l'acte d'écrire aujourd'hui, comme la question des genres, la redéfinition de la fiction, les filiations, les représentations du sujet, les nouvelles socialités. Une double préoccupation animait à l'origine la tentative : ouvrir des voies et découper des territoires ; voir comment les analyses peuvent rendre compte des questions d'ordre ontologique et théorique qui agitent notre époque -le souci de soi, la posture de l'écrivain, l'expérience de l'altérité, - le problème de la quête identitaire étant au centre des débats. Autant d'enjeux qui ont trouvé leur écho, tantôt par le biais de l'attention monographique, tantôt par celui de la réflexion de portée plus générale. Cartographier le fictif contemporain, c'est intégrer des éléments disparates pour donner au paysage et à l'horizon littéraires une meilleure visibilité."Article| Aline Mura-Brunel| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : ""La présente étude a pour objectif d'examiner la réception de l'historiographie renaissante et ses mutations à travers les biofictions en langue française du tournant du XXIe siècle. Ce choix relève d'un constat, soit celui d'une coïncidence, au début des années quatre-vingt, entre d'une part : 1) la multiplication de fictions historiques situées au XVIe siècle, dont la plupart mettent en scène des personnages référentiels peu connus de la Renaissance européenne qui correspondent à l'une de ces trois figures marginales, soit l'artiste inverti , le lettré hérétique ou le pauvre diable ; et d'autre part : 2) la reconceptualisation de la notion de Renaissance qui émerge d'une multiplication de travaux portant sur des individus marginaux de l'historiographie renaissante.Mes recherches visent à développer une meilleure compréhension de ces deux phénomènes à partir d'une analyse qui lie les modalités de mise en marge des protagonistes de mon corpus, la mise en récit de leur parcours biographique et la conceptualisation de la notion de Renaissance qui se dégage de ces textes. Mon analyse démontre que les procédés de mise en marge des personnages référentiels diffèrent en fonction de leur sexe. Tandis que la marginalisation des personnages masculins produit chez ces derniers un sentiment accru de leur individualité, les personnages féminins tendent à être relégués dans les marges du texte lui-même, où elles servent à mettre en valeur des protagonistes masculins. S'il est vrai que la période renaissante constitue une référence culturelle importante par le biais de laquelle les sociétés occidentales tentent de comprendre ce qui les caractérise à l'époque contemporaine, je crois que cette relecture androcentrique , ou fortement masculine, du XVIe siècle témoigne d'une certaine difficulté à concevoir l'agentivité féminine à l'époque contemporaine." --"Article| Miruna Craciunescu| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Senior colonial officer from 1813 to 1859, Inspector General James Barry was a pioneering medical reformer who after his death in 1865 became the object of intense speculation when rumours arose about his sex. This cultural history of Barry’s afterlives in Victorian to contemporary (neo-Victorian) life-writing (‘biographilia’) examines the textual and performative strategies of biography, biofiction and biodrama of the last one and a half centuries. In exploring the varied reconstructions and re-imaginations of the historical personality across time, the book illustrates (not least with its cover image) that the ‘real’ James Barry does not exist, any more than does the ‘faithful’ biographical, biofictional or biodramatic rendering of a life in a generically ‘stable’ and discrete form. What Barry represents and how he is represented invariably pinpoints the imaginative, the speculative and the performative: reflections and refractions in the looking glass of genre. Just as ‘James Miranda Barry’, as a subject of cultural inquiry, comes into being and remains in view in the act of crossing gender, so neo-Victorian life-writing constitutes itself through similar acts of boundary transgression. Transgender thus finds its most typical expression in transgenre."Article| Ann Heilmann| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "This is the first in-depth study of the twelve Modiano texts specifically concerned with life-writing in autobiographical and biographical-cum-historiographical projects. The texts covered range fromLa Place de l'étoile (1968) through to La Petite Bijou (2001). Close textual analysis is combined with a theoretical approach based on current thinking in autobiography, biography, and reader-response. Modiano's use of autofiction and biofiction is analysed in the light of his continuing obsession with both personal trauma and History, as well as his problematic relationship with his paternally-inherited Jewish links. His view of identity (of self and other) is thus discussed in relation to a particular literary and socio-historical context– French, postmodern, post-World War II, and post-Holocaust."Article| Dervila Cooke| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "In recent years, the biographical novel has become one of the most dominant literary forms-J.M. Coetzee, Margaret Atwood, Hilary Mantel, Colum McCann, Anne Enright, Joyce Carol Oates, Peter Carey, Russell Banks, and Julia Alvarez are just a few luminaries who have published stellar biographical novels. But why did this genre come into being mainly in the 20th century? Is it ethical to invent stories about an actual historical figure? What is biofiction uniquely capable of signifying? Why are so many prominent writers now authoring such works? And why are they winning such major awards? In Biographical Fiction: A Reader, some of the finest scholars and writers of biofiction clarify what led to the rise of this genre, reflect on its nature and form, and specify what it is uniquely capable of doing. Combining primary and critical material, this accessible reader will be invaluable to students, teachers, and scholars of biofiction."Article| Michael Lackey| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "My thesis examines why members of Charles Dickens's domestic circle recur as characters in neo-Victorian biofiction published between 1990 and 2010. Following the postmodern foregrounding of the marginalised figures of history, biofiction of this kind rewrites - and “re-rights” - biographical materials in order to enable Victorian figures to “live” again, and speak their own imagined testimony, in accordance with the priorities of today. Though most of the Hogarth/Dickens circle remain silent, or silenced, in the historical record, those who have been reprised as fictional characters include Dickens’s wife, Catherine; her sisters, Mary and Georgina Hogarth; his presumed mistress, Ellen Ternan; and his children. Recent novels that have sought to articulate their experiences include Peter Carey's Jack Maggs (1997), Jeff Rackham's The Rag and Bone Shop (2001), Audrey Thomas's Tattycoram (2005), Richard Flanagan's Wanting (2008), Gaynor Arnold's Girl in a Blue Dress (2008), Matthew Pearl's The Last Dickens (2009), Dan Simmons’s Drood (2009), and Anne-Marie Vukelic's Far Above Rubies (2010). Yet although such novels foreground Dickens's relatives and loveinterests in place of him, they paradoxically rely on the Victorian author for their meaningfulness. My thesis proposes, then, that neo-Victorian biofiction based on Dickens exhibits a twofold agenda: on the one hand, enabling the critique of biographical (mis)representations of the Hogarth/Dickens circle and, on the other hand, enhancing the experience of engaging with “Charles Dickens”, in and for the twenty-first century."Article| Azure Engelbrecht| Statement ..."
