Abstract

Marc Dambre’s ego-history focuses on his research on Roger Nimier (1925–1962) and the right-wing literary group referred to as ‘Les Hussards’, to which the latter belonged. The literary masters of this group included writers who had been accused of collaboration at the Liberation. Dambre’s subject and methodology went against the current in the 1960s and 1970s: at that time, it was rare to study contemporary writers, and ‘New Criticism’ advocated a more narrow literary approach. Moreover, French academia was largely dominated by left-wing scholars who identified literary interests with ideological beliefs. This chapter explores these obstacles, as well as positive changes which occurred in the 1980s when literary history became more fashionable and French academia started to include the contemporary, partly owing to research groups initiated or supported by the author.
