John Crowley: "Transformations of History in Fiction”

Award-winning novelist and documentary-filmmaker John Crowley will give a talk on the difference between conventional historical fiction and what he calls “transformative historical fiction.”

Crowley received the Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1992, and has taught for many years in the English department at Yale University.

His novels include The Deep, Beasts, Engine Summer (a finalist for the National Book Award), Little, Big (winner of the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel), the four-volume novel Aegypt (The Solitudes; Love & Sleep; Daemonomania; Endless Things), The Translator (recipient of the Italian Premio Flaiano prize), Lord Byron’s Novel, Four Freedoms, and Ka: Dar Oakley in the Ruin of Ymr (recipient of the Mythopoeic Award).

Crowley has also written award-winning scripts for short films and historical documentaries, including The World of Tomorrow (about the 1939 World’s Fair), No Place to Hide (on the bomb shelter obsession), The Hindenburg (for HBO), and FIT: Episodes in the History of the Body (examining American fitness practices and beliefs over the decades).

The annual Lunn Lectureship commemorates Eugene Lunn, a scholar of modern European intellectual history who taught at UC Davis from 1970 until his death in 1990.
