The Fascination with Historical Fiction.

PEER INTO THE PLAYBILL

THE FASCINATION WITH HISTORICAL FICTION

Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
Thursday, September 5, 2024
10:30 a.m. to noon

Historical fiction combines fiction with historical settings, time periods and events. While historical figures, like William Shakespeare, may appear, the central characters are typically fictional, like Nick and Nigel Bottom in Something Rotten!. Join Professor Thomas Luxon of Dartmouth College, Professor Michael Dove of Western University, and others in this discussion of how fictionalizing history helps us understand the past (and present) in a deeper way.
