In what extent is the reception of literary works depending on gender-specific differences?

Project Details


It is the main aim of the research group to analyze gendered imaginations and stereotypes in literature. The members of the research group are specialists of German language and literature. Applying feminist linguistic theories on the interpretation of literary works can reveal very interesting new points of view.
The interdisciplinary research group proves to be very attractive to young researchers from other Belgian universities. The participants meet once a month and give lectures about results of their research. The lectures are followed by discussions about methodology.
