Dr Laura Moretti has been awarded a grant for the project "Invitations to Playful Reading: towards a new Paradigm for the Study of Graphic Fiction from Early Modern to Contemporary Japan" through the Stockholm-Cambridge Collaborative Research Grants Scheme.

This research project is developed in collaboration with Prof Dr Jaqueline Berndt and seeks to challenge our received understanding of literature by exploring the participatory and performative nature of texts. Focussing on early modern picturebooks and late modern graphic narratives manga, ultimately the project aims at articulating a new critical paradigm to approach entertaining illustrated prose from before and after the heyday of modernism.
