Mythèmes du Nord – Mythemes of the North

The project aims to map the evolution of narrative knowledge of the North in Europe since the Middle Ages by studying its smallest units – the mythemes of the North – and their narrative grammar in cultural circulation. It is using the latest advances of digital humanities, cross breading it with productive new-readings and sometimes voluntary misunderstanding of (post-)structuralist theories, cultural media studies and studies of geographies of knowledge. A byproduct might be a general Theory of Mythemes of Social Knowledge in Cultural Circulation.
