Welcome to Sabrina Parent's webpage. Since 2015, I am a FNRS research associate, working at Université libre de Bruxelles in the Research Centers Philixte and Modern and Contemporary Worlds. My new project is concerned with the "regime of historicity" of the Belgo-Congolese "postcolony."
More generally, my research interests are related to the notion of event in literature. They include issues such as literary representations of historical events, the way writing transforms the insignificant into significant events —or the opposite— and the process of writing / reading as an act with ethical impacts.
Fields of research: Novels and Poetry in the French and Francophone Worlds (1950-)
You'll find here information regarding my education and teaching experience as well as my research interests and other activities.
