Lore De Greve studied English and German Linguistics and Literature at Ghent University and Literary Studies at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven). In 2019, she was a project collaborator on the ERC project Constructing Age for Young Readers ('CAFYR') at the University of Antwerp. She is currently working as a doctoral researcher at Ghent University on the research project 'Evaluation of literature by professional and layperson critics. A digital and literary sociological analysis of evaluative talk of literature through the prism of literary prizes (2007-2017)", supervised by Prof. Gunther Martens, Prof. Daan Vandenhaute, Prof. Henk Roose, Prof. Lars Bernaerts and Prof. Veronique Hoste and funded by the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO-Vlaanderen). Her research focuses on the perceptions of readers by means of a digitally empowered method of literary sociology, drawing on a broad corpus of critical discourse generated by six literary prizes in three different linguistic communities.
