Today we are seeing a notable increase in series with an autobiographical content. Scriptwriters are telling their own stories, sometimes using a pseudonym and sometimes not.The autobiographical genre brings with it a lot of choices. How close should you stick to reality? Or should fact and fiction be freely mixed? What are the consequences for an author who is identified with a character in a series? And can you control this anyway? Are autobiographical series necessarily narrative in form? If not, what other forms and scripts can be considered? And how is it possible for a character to address a wide audience from such a hyper-personal approach? Programme:12.00pm >12.30pm Light lunch 12.30 pm > 1.30pm Lunch hour discussion with Leander Verdievel (Sense of Tumor) (EN)Moderation by Anneleen Masschelein (KULeuven)1.30pm>2pm Light lunch 2pm > 4pm Keynote: Audacious Mirrors: Between television and Internet, the emergence of a new serial, autobiographic webform?
