Narratological interest

As a relatively young assistant professor in the Faculty of Languages and Literatures of Transylvania University of Brasov, Romania, I could hardly call myself a “narratologist”, maybe one in the making. Nevertheless, my interest in narratology is a genuine one, being given that narratological analysis represents the focus of my Ph.D. thesis, which am constantly working on. Consequently, state-of-the-art materials in this field, such as the ones available in your digital resource, would undoubtedly benefit by research. All I can hope now (quite a daring thought!) is that one day I will be able to contribute myself to this resource with my own findings.
The thesis, entitled The 60’s Generation. Narrative Techniques, aims at investigating the narrative techniques present in the works of the Romanian writers of the ’60s, a literary moment characterized by interferences between two literary paradigms: Socialist-Realism and Neo-Modernism, between surviving rough creative modalities from the 6th d
ecade and the pursuit of artisticity. Thus, it represents the period of resurrection of the Romanian prose from the dogmatism peculiar to realist socialism and the renewal of the esthetic element in literature.
