Résumé :

« Biography : Critique of a Literary Genre » is a research project proposing to study biography as a specific literary genre, distinct from autobiography, life-writing, and biofiction. The project comprises an individual axis and a collective axis. The individual research has two successive phases: firstly, it will analyse a select corpus of British biographers to form the basis of a master’s degree seminar, as a preparation to propose, secondly, a contribution to the theorization of biography, based on a broader corpus. The collective research consists in continuing to animate the Biography Society, founded in Aix-Marseille University (AMU) in 2015, by a monthly interdisciplinary seminar and a series of yearly international colloquiums, while providing it with a dedicated library fund, and reinforcing its international network and its involvement in the structures of the university.
