Myth-Making and Myth-Breaking in History and the Humanities: Proceedings of the Conference Held at the University of Bucharest, 6-8 October 2011. Ed. Claudia-Florentina Dobre, Ionuţ Epurescu-Pascovici, Cristian Emilian Ghiţă
Descrierea în limba română
The eighteen papers collected in the proceedings volume of the conference ‘Myth-Making and Myth-Breaking in History and the Humanities’ (University of Bucharest, 6-8 October 2011) provide a fresh perspective on a traditionally important topic in the study of culture. They broach new territory in the analysis of myth-making, investigating the construction, cultural significance, and socio-political function of an array of historical myths, from the ancient world to the beginnings of modernity to the intersections of science, literature, and ideology in the late twentieth century. In addition, several papers operate a reflexive turn, questioning the role of fiction and myth within contemporary academic discourse.
