The aim of EUTERPE: European Literatures and Gender from a Transnational Perspective is to offer an innovative approach to rethinking European cultural production in the light of complex social and political negotiations that are shaping European spaces and identities at present. EUTERPE intends to do that by bringing together gender and transnational perspectives within an interdisciplinary approach to literary and cultural studies.
The research is organized into 8 work packages within four main areas:
1. Transnational women’s literature and its travels: points of entry and pathways (WP 1, WP2);
2. Translational genres: crossing borders in gender, form, space, and identity (WP 3, WP4);
3. Transnational women intellectuals, multilingualism and decolonising European pedagogies (WP 5, WP6);
4. Transnational literature and cultural production: intermediality as a form of translation (WP7, WP8).
The Doctoral Candidates’ academic training will include two supervisors from cooperating universities, a compulsory secondment period, and an industrial internship with an Associated Partner organization to support bespoke employability enhancement.
The major impact outputs of the project: 11 PhD theses; a co-produced open-source Dictionary of Transnational Women’s Literature in Europe with key concepts and bio-bibliographic entries on leading representatives of the field; and a Digital Catalogue and Podcast Library, which will make accessible all relevant material collected during the creation of the Dictionary.
As a complex, interdisciplinary project, EUTERPE brings together literary and gender studies, as well as transnational studies, translation studies, migration studies and European studies.
