SLEAHTITCHI Maria. The Novel of the 80’s Generation. The Poetics of the Genre. Doctoral dissertation in philology within specialty 622.01 - Romanian Literature, Chisinau, 2018. Structure of the dissertation: introduction, five chapters, general conclusions and recommendations, bibliography of 292 titles, 245 pages of basic text. The results obtained are reflected in 72 scientific papers. Key words: novel, 80’s generation, postmodernism, poetics, narratology, textualism, writing, rewriting, fractal. Field of study: Romanian literature. Purpose of the paper: Identifying and interpreting the signs of gender poetics in the novel of the 80’s generation from the perspective of the manifestation of the phenomenon on a national and transnational level. Research objectives: mapping the corpus of authors and works; studying the theoretical approaches of the novel; identifying the algorithm of interpretation of the eighties novel; establishing the transnational character of the eighties; the analysis of the eighties novel from ex-socialist countries’ literature; studying the overall picture of the novel of the 80's generation; dissociation between the novel of the previous generation and the eighties novel; the analysis of the Romanian eighties novel, through the works of the most representative figures; establishing the narratological profile of the Romanian eighties novel from Bessarabia. The scientific novelty and originality resides in approaching through a unitary discourse the poetics of the eighties novel, viewed in a three-dimensional projection. The present paper is the first study in the Romanian and Southeastern European research that homologates the Russian, Ukrainian, Hungarian, Polish, Bulgarian and Romanian novel from both sides of Prut river in an analytical overview. New scientific results: supplementing with new notions the science of literature in the Romanian space; proving the functionality of the concept of transnational eighties, of the distinct poetics belonging to the eighties novel, motivated by the existence of a common socio-political and aesthetic background, as well as the accreditation of the concepts of area of common social mentalities, of ars-po(i)etica-novel. This led to the establishment of interpretation grids appropriate to the predominantly postmodernist narrative in order to draft the History of the Novel in the Romanian Space and direct the current research towards the study of the literary phenomena from the perspective of the socio-cultural and the literary and geographical context, when the political changes and the metabolism of the literary phenomena are in a relationship of interdependence. Their interdependence legitimizes the existence of a transnational network made up of relevant literary phenomena that abolish the frontiers of national literature. The theoretical and applicative significance of the paper can be found in the demonstration of the transnational and homologous character of the novel of the 80’s generation, in the establishment of the unity in the diversity of the preponderantly postmodernist practice of the eighties novel, in the identification of strategies and techniques of the same type. Both theoretical approaches and text analyses open up new research horizons of literary phenomena in general, and contemporary prose in particular. Implementation of the scientific results. The results of the dissertation were implemented within the framework of three scientific research projects carried out between 2010-2017 at "Alecu Russo" State University in Balti and the State University of Moldova; in the writing of scientific papers presented at national and international conferences, in the teaching of university courses of history of Romanian literature, contemporary literature, narrative art; in the coordination of bachelor’s and master’s theses, and doctoral dissertations.
