The "NOVANOV" team, dedicated to "Novelists on the Art of the Novel," brings together researchers in the Department of French Language and Literature and the Department of English at McGill University, as well as the English Department at Concordia University.
This research team examines non-novelistic texts-essays, prefaces, interviews, correspondence, diaries, and commentary that novelists have written about their chosen genre. These texts often articulate the aims and values of the novel, or indeed its praxis and stakes. Research focuses on "the modern novel," which is to say novels written between the later eighteenth century and the present day.
