Frédéric Fladenmuller was invited to speak at the Centre de recherches Proustiennes de la Sorbonne nouvelle (the official center in France of Proustian research housed at the Sorbonne in Paris). The occasion was the publication of Prof. Fladenmuller’s fifth monograph, Proust ou l’écriture inversive. Du temps perdu au temps retrouvé. Prof. Fladenmuller’s talk on Marcel Proust’s À la recherche du temps perdu, In Search of Lost Time, was entitled, “Proust and the revolution of style: inversive writing.”
Prof. Fladenmuller is also author of a previous study on Proust’s masterwork, Télescopie. La science du genre d’ À la recherche du temps perdu. Prof. Fladenmuller’s other studies have included two works on the modern novel, La voix neutre du chaos: étude sur la complexité de textes modernes and Caractérisation et les modes de la narration dans le roman moderne. Théorie de caractérologie narratologique. All were published by Peter Lang.
Last year, on the 100th anniversary of the publication of “Swann’s Way,” part I of À la recherche, Prof. Fladenmuller was invited to contribute a submission to a special edition of Bulletin Marcel Proust. He was also awarded the Palmes Academiques in recognition of his cumulative contributions to the promotion of French culture.
