The NOVANOV team federates researchers from different departments at McGill University and the Université du Québec à Rimouski and unites various research projects surrounding the history and the art of the novel. This research team examines all questions relative to the novel as an art form. Research focuses on "the modern novel," which is to say novels written between the later eighteenth century and the present day.
