Unit of study_

Nouvelles textualités - FRNC2688

Year - 2019

This unit of study will examine the French literary field, its traditions and its innovations. The approach will be both literary and sociological. Major theoretical and cultural issues related to literature studies, such as the "death of the author", the emergence of new literary genres and textualities ("bandes dessinees", writers' blogs, fiction online) and the future of the book (literary agencies, creative writing workshops, awards and competitions) will be viewed in their socio-cultural environment.
