New 'Literature under Constraint' Publication Now Available

Monday 27 September 2021

A special issue of the Australian Journal of French Studies, showcasing the IMLR’s AHRC-funded research project, Literature under Constraint, has just been published.​

Co-edited by Dominic Glynn and Sébastien Lemerle, Aux frontières du réel: littérature et réalité aux xxie siècle considers how works of contemporary literature in French have sought to depict ‘real life’, using a myriad of stylistic and thematic approaches. To do so, contributors from the social sciences and literary studies, as well as professionals from the book world, have come together to outline recent developments in the French literary field which have led to a renewed interest in realism. The issue investigates intimate portrayals of the self as well as of wider society via the contributions of Hervé Serry (CNRS), Alice Jacquelin (Limoges), Morgan Le Ho (La Découverte), Joanne Brueton (ULIP), Jean-Michel Gouvard (Bordeaux Montaigne) and Anna-Louise Milne (ULIP).
