Narratological interest

I am a philologist (Dutch/English/German) working on a doctoral thesis (KU Leuven, prom. Bart Philipsen), concerning narrative and rhetorical aspects in the theatre work of the Belgian author, Paul Pourveur.
Since there is an intricate relationship between extra-, intra- and hypodiegetic narrative instances in his work, and since Pourveur bases dramatic conflict often on the confrontation between different generic frames, the viewpoint of unnatural (antimimetic) and cognitive narratology interest me most.
As head of the research group Drama of Luca School of Arts and therefore in charge of several projects with a narrative focus (Oral History, Melancholy, Heroism).
