>This seminar invites scholars from different disciplines to ponder how
>their fields imagine connections between texts of historiography and
>texts of literature in their own work. Seeking to put into conversation
>the wealth of literary scholars' contributions to the study of
>eighteenth-century colonialism, and the rigorous effort of social
>scientists and historians to establish compelling narratives about the
>past, we particularly welcome papers that inquire into colonialist
>constitution and historiographical reconstitution of empires by means
>of writing and documentation as aides in discerning between fact and
>fiction.
>
>We especially encourage papers that examine the creation of reading
>canons for literary and historical study around languages of nations
>which serve to limit the disciplinesŪ spheres of interest. In
>anticipation of consequences of this conversation between disciplines
>for teaching methodologies, we invite models and suggestions for
>acknowledging the contacts between fact and fiction in literary, social
>and cultural histories in the classroom.
