Collection : Signes

The "Signes" collection includes publications in the following fields:
- research into French, European and World literature of the 20TH and 21ST centuries, as well as research into contemporary work.
- research on the relationships between literature and human sciences, between literature and the other arts and between history and the theory of modernist literature, from Romanticism to the contemporary avant-gardes, by being receptive to the question of exchanges and translation in the widest sense.
Focusing on these areas, it publishes collective works which represent the results of academic research and individual studies which are intended to become poetological reference works. It also republishes important texts which are difficult to obtain.
