These focus areas contain the most urgent questions concerning a philology of adventure. They form sites for common research and direct the projects’ work towards specific fields.
Each project participates in two focus areas.
- While the area Adventure and Modernity forms the historical focus of the group,
- the area Driving Forces of Storytelling orients its research in the psychology of literature,
- the area Contingency and Coherency represents its narratological emphasis,
- and the area Adventure and Fiction places a focus on literary theory.
