AnotationThe presented project concentrates on genre and sub-genre transformations (mutations, contaminations, modifications, etc.) in newer Czech fiction. Of course, there is no ambition to deal with mentioned cultural phenomena in their full complexity during one-year research, therefore our research interest has long-term format and follows one-year recurrence of SGS projects continuously. The presented project continues in subject matter and methodological approaches of the SGS projects solved at the Department of Czech Literature and Literary Criticism, Faculty of Arts, University of Ostrava in the years 2017 and 2018. The attention of the research team is again oriented to transformations of a chosen single genre or sub-genre or to genre profile in works of fiction by individual authors. At the same time, the new topics will be solved with contemporary methodological approaches (e.g. application of modal categories, theory of fictional worlds or reception theory).
