Gefen (ed.): Territoires de la non-fiction

The new edition to Brill’s “Chiasma” book series is Territoires de la non-fiction (Territories of Non-Fiction), a collection of essays edited by ICLA theory committee member Alexandre Gefen and featuring a chapter by former member Dominique Vaugeois. If the previous centuries had seen the crowning of the novel, Gefen argues, the twenty-first century begins with the triumph of the document: travel writings, investigative, criminal, or ethnological investigations, autobiographies, “factographies,” factions, literary reports and recordings, and other forms of narrative that refuse to call themselves fictions occupy our bookstores. The volume attempts to inventory these new territories of non-fiction.
