University of Leuven, Belgium

The aim of this conference is to map and critically assess different theoretical approaches to the interlinking of short stories in a collection. Within the Anglo-American critical tradition, the dominant critical frame is that of the short story cycle (although several rival terms have been coined, such as short story sequence, composite novel, or short story composite), while in the Francophone tradition, the short story cycle has been linked to a broader variety of genres and forms of textual organization. In yet other contexts, such as Italian semiotics, short story collections have been analysed as "macrotexts" (macrotesto).
