Join us for the annual French Graduate Student conference, “Fabrications of Reality”, as we examine how storytelling and fiction are not solely found in literature, and how prevalent ideologies also tell us stories that determine and shift our perception of reality. There is no objective reality, only fabrications, literary and political. The conference will bring together scholars reimagining how reality is constructed through history and in our current political era. Presentations and discussions will address auto-fiction, Bovary-ism, fabrications of identity, queer utopias, orientalism, reality as text and semiotics of mapped realities.
