Please tell us about your research project.
I study the riddles in verse in 17th and 18th century French-language periodicals. I approach this journalistic entertainment as a literary genre and practice, and as a source for the study of the magazines of the Ancien Régime (editorial policy, composition of the readership).
Could you please tell us a bit more about this scholarship/exchange programme.
I benefit from a postdoctoral fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation. Called « Postdoc.Mobility », this grant allows recipients to carry out a one- to two-year research project abroad.
