March 25, 2011
Time:2:45-4 p.m.
Description:The Faculty Seminar on British Studies presents "Fiction and the Archives: The Art and Craft of the Historian," a talk by Deborah Harkness, University of Southern California (USC). British history exerts a powerful pull on the popular imagination as evidenced by movies, television shows and the items for sale in bookshops. But where does history end and fiction begin? Drawing on tales from the archives (including a plagiarist in the early Royal Society) and her own experiences in writing fiction, Harkness discusses the perils and promise of new historical methodologies and writing trends that blend the craft of the historical writer with that of the creative writer.

Harkness is professor of history of science and medicine at USC. Her most recent scholarly book, "The Jewel House: Elizabethan London and the Scientific Revolution," won both the Snow Prize of the North American Conference on British Studies and the Pfizer Prize of the History of Science Society. Her first novel, "A Discovery of Witches," has just been published.

Upcoming: Friday, April 1, historian A.G. Hopkins speaks on the United States as a lost British dominion.
