The poster 'New forms of authenticity? Autobiographical writing in Dutch literature since 1995' presents a research project by the same name. Since the research was started on October 1, 2009, the results are not yet available. The poster offers a short description of the background (the mediatisation of literature from 1985 onwards, the dilution of postmodernism around 1995) and the research question (Do different forms of autobiographical writing postulate different claims of authenticity?). A scheme that visualises the relationships between the distinguished forms of autobiographical writing (classical autobiography, pseudo-autobiography, autobiographical novel and 'autofiction') on two axes (from factual rendering to fiction, from ego to alter ego) was placed in the centre. The methodology (a discourse analytical study into the manner in which the textual, paratextual, extratextual and contextual strategies with an authentifying effect on the reading audience have changed since 1995) is also presented in short.
