Discourses of/on History in Literature in English

by Liliana Sikorska (Volume editor)
Conference proceedings 154 Pages

Summary

Literature in English is a term that has recently appeared to include both English literature in the traditional sense of the word and all the newly emerging literatures written and published in English whose authors may represent various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. This series as well as the yearly Literature in English Symposium (LIES) organized by the Department of English Literature and Literary Linguistics, the School of English at Adam Mickiewicz University Poznań (Poland), respond to the current interest in wider mapping of English literature. Each year the symposium is devoted to a particular topic linked with the interests of an invited writer, whose presentation we also publish. The volume is devoted to the discourses of/on history as is the main area of interest of Adam Thorpe.
