Floris Bernard studies and teaches Byzantine literature. His research has centered on the social embedment of "learned" poetry and letter-writing, especially in the eleventh century (Michael Psellos, John Mauropous, etc.). Topics that feature prominently in his work are education, competition, emotions, humor, and reading practices. He has also initiated a digital database of Byzantine poetic paratexts (www.dbbe.ugent.be).
