In September 2016, the Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR) played host to a major international conference, ‘Oulipo and the Second World War’, which shed new light on the work of the ‘Ouvroir de littérature potentielle’ (Oulipo for short), a famous French experimental literature group. Sponsored by the Cassal Trust Foundation and the University of London, the conference was the last event to be held under the aegis of the prestigious ANR Difdepo research programme. It came to fruition as the result of a new fertile cross-channel collaboration between U.K. and French higher education institutions, including IMLR, Maison française d’Oxford (MFO) and the universities of Poitiers, Paris III and Paris IV. Dominic Glynn, Dominique Moncond’huy, Philippe Roussin and Alain Schaffner were the event organizers.

When the participants of this year’s postgraduate reading group at St Andrews University were asked to give an informal group presentation at the ‘Ways of Knowing’ conference held in January 2005 to talk about our own experiences and perceptions of ‘knowledge’ and how they had changed since coming to St Andrews, we decided to divide our papers up and present them in the form of a conversation rather than read them out one at a time. This worked very well, despite us all coming from considerably different backgrounds: there were always points in each one’s personal account the others could somehow relate to and then expand on by contributing their own experiences. What we ended up with was thus a polyphonic (if necessarily incomplete) account of the St Andrews postgraduate experience of knowledge acquisition, whereby the stress on the personal paradoxically functioned both to separate our different voices and as a common denominator on which we could base our conversation.
