The writer’s positionality between traditional folktales and Western memoirs.
Richard Kerridge and Professor Illan Pappe (Exeter University)
Sabrin's research focuses around the ethical issues arising from the use of memories to build non-fiction memoirs.
In the creative writing research field, this problem has often been reduced to the risk of disrupting the reader’s trust by inserting fiction inside what is expected to be purely non-fiction. However, the question has much deeper implications, especially when there is controversial or missing material in the memories collected.
My project addresses this issue by looking at alternative sources that non-fiction writers can use to give an exhaustive account to their readers, without giving a misleading picture of the historical facts and cultural background of their narration.
