In my current employment as a research assistant, I study the phenomenon of reading experiences and how fiction literature affects subjectivity. This is done in continuation of my Master thesis on the same topic, and the aim is to investigate how meanings are constituted in the interplay between reader and novel. This further concerns how psychological components such as affectivity, imagination and understanding are at play in the experience, as well as how they connect to psychological processes such as sensation, perception, pre-reflectivity and reflectivity. This is done withing a framework of phenomenological method and theory, drawing primarily on Merleau-Ponty.
