Anglo-Saxon Fatherlands:
Fictional and Filmic Representations of the Worlds Hitler Never Made

A Conference to be held at the University of Ulster, Coleraine, Northern Ireland, on 20-22 June 2007.

"What If?" has been a significant question in historical research in the past ten years, provoking the publication of a range of essays and books on alternative historical scenarios, including a Nazi victory in World War II. This conference aims to investigate the scenario of a Nazi/fascist-dominated society as it has been portrayed not in alternative historical books and essays, but in literature and film since the 1930s, from Sinclair Lewis's "It Can't Happen Here", through Philip K. Dick's "The Man in the High Castle" and Robert Harris's "Fatherland" to Philip Roth's "The Plot Against America". The conference organizers invite papers either on individual authors and/or works or on thematic elements of such literature (portrayals of collaboration, degrees of "normality", characterizations of Nazis, etc.). Though most such literature appears to have been published in the UK and the USA, the conference is not restricted to papers on literature that was written in English. The conference language will, however, be English. The organizers intend submitting a proposal for an edited book, based on a selection of papers from the conference, to a major academic publisher.

The conference will include a screening of the 1964 British film "It Happened Here", which is set in Nazi-occupied Britain, and an open interview with the film's director, Kevin Brownlow.

Offers of papers, in the form of an abstract of 300 words (max.) and including a 10-line autobiographical summary, should be sent as Word attachments to both Prof. Ian Wallace ( and Prof. Pól Ó Dochartaigh (, to reach us no later than 31 October 2006. Decisions will be communicated by 30 November 2006.
