We pursue research along three trajectories:
Emotions across Cultures and Languages – the ways in which literature highlights our feelings across different cultures and languages.
Cultural and Cognitive Memory – how literature shapes memories and identities.
Literature as a Lifeworld Technology – the role that literary texts and literary reading play in the digital lifeworld.
The LCE guest researcher programme brings internationally leading scholars to Oslo. In addition, LCE members visit collaborating universities for research stays.
