Project description

This project aims for an integrated narratological approach of speech acts and the representation of consciousness in experimental texts by the Flemish author Ivo Michiels. The theory of speech acts will be integrated in a cognitive narratological framework for the study of conciousness in fiction. In this way, the effects of experimental texts can be articulated more precisely.
