Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In multiperspectival narratives, multiple and often discrepant viewpoints are employed for the presentation and evaluation of pivotal events. In doing so, the intricate technique of multiperspectivity highlights the perceptually, epistemologically or ideologically restricted nature of individual perspectives and draws attention to the relative character of personal viewpoints. In this seminar, we will examine different types of multiperspectival discrepancy. Studying various texts taken from different epochs, genres and media, we will look at multiperspectivity's diachronic and transmedial dimensions, ascertaining the close link it bears with phenomena such as unreliability, fallible filtration, focalisation, point of view and the Bakhtinian concepts of polyphony and heteroglossia.
