During the first mandatory lockdowns of the Covid-19 pandemic, citizens worldwide turned to ‘pandemic fictions’ or started to produce their own ‘Corona Fictions’ across different media. These accounts of (previously) experienced or imagined health crises feature a great variety of protagonists and their (re)actions in response to the exceptional circumstances.
The contributions take a closer look at different pandemic protagonists in fictional narratives relating to the Covid-19 pandemic as well as in existing pandemic fictions. Hereby, they offer a diverse array of impressions into pandemic narratives from a cultural, literary, and media studies perspective from antiquity to today.
On Friday, you can attend the conference in person; on Saturday, you can join us online. If you wish to participate, in both cases please register with: daniel.milkovits[a]tugraz.at.
