Karin Kukkonen: New Research Project on the Emergence of the Novel

Committee member Karin Kukkonen has launched a new research project on «Jeu du roman» at the University of Oslo. The project seeks to shed light on how literary games in the French 17th-century salons contributed to establishing the novel as a genre. The project combines literary studies, anthropology and creative writing and, by re-enacting some of these 400 years-old games, it aims to reconstruct part of the context for the rise of the novel. Further information can be found here.
