The research project aims to establish the model of the "visceral novel reader" in the scholarly community by organizing a number of international workshops at the intersection of novel studies, narrative theory, and hermeneutical phenomenology. Two workshops bring together both established and emerging scholars of several disciplinary fields and universities from various countries around the world.
