151.The Universe of Short Stories

Outline Periods
The main aim of our research team is to inquire into the rich and diverse universe of short stories and analyse individual stories from a historical and/or theoretical point of view. We focus on stories written in English as the object of our research at present, but we are also considering the addition of some non-English short stories for comparison. Moreover, since short stories are often used in the classroom, we are planning to study their effective use in teaching.
