Since the Middle Ages until today literary works have contributed to the image of Ghent as a city of rebels. Literature also criticizes and transforms this image. The present project disseminates recent research into those literary rebels. It chooses the format of an illustrated book for a broad audience, city walks and a podcast series. The audience will be acquainted with a broadened understanding of literature, in which performance (e.g., happenings by Pjeroo Roobjee) and song (e.g. Walter De Buck or De Vieze Gasten) are also represented; the audience learns about recent approaches in literary studies; and the audience is familiarized with case studies from a range of periods, going from the medieval Maagd van Gent to Virginie Loveling and Stefan Hertmans. Each of those case studies also rise above their local context.
