2007 : Doctorat en langues et lettres (Université de Liège)


In 1998, Björn-Olav Dozo began studies at the ULg's department of Romance languages and literatures. He rounded off his degree by writing a dissertation on `The reception of Thomas More's Utopia by his French translator.' He continued in 2002 and a doctoral thesis, analysing respectively `The two first generations of the Royal Academy of French Language and Literature: discourse, personnel and networks' and `The measure of a writer; a socio-statistical study of the francophone Belgian literature sub-field between the wars, a thesis written under the supervision of Jean-Marie Klinkenberg in 2007. He was a F.R.S-FNRS postdoctoral researcher and is now lecturer at the University of Liège.

At the same time, the researcher has been extending the range of his activities. He is amongst the founder members of COnTEXTES, whose journal he co-edited (2006-2011), and of the comic strip study group, `ACME¿, whose book collection he coordinates. Since 2013, his research has focused on video games as cultural objects. He is one of the co-founders of the Liège Game Lab, whose activities can be followed on social networks (@LiegeGameLab on Twitter) and on their website. He also is the codirector of the Presses universitaires de Liège and the director of the Centre informatique de Philosophie et Lettres (CIPL) and of the Cellule d'Appui à la Recherche et à l'Enseignement (CARE) "Digital Tools | Outils numériques".
