About the book
Monika Fludernik / Henrik Skov Nielsen (eds.)
Travelling Concepts: New Fictionality Studies
The collection of essays in the book re-examines the much discussed fact-fiction distinction in light of the current burgeoning of research on fictionality. It provides a forum for ongoing work on fictionality from France, Germany, Denmark and Sweden and introduces this work to the Anglophone world. Although the focus of this collection is on fictionality studies, the foregrounded role of the factual and its decisive impact on the framing and constitution of the fictional are a recurring issue in the essays. In the current geo-political moment where the trust in truth, knowledge and science is under pressure, and where social media offer unlimited access to story-sharing, this book attempting to answer the question of fictionality is necessary.
