The Centre for Research and Documentation on Oral Literature was created by agreement between the Finistère Department, the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the Université de Bretagne occidentale. Located in Manoir de Kernault, Mellac, it aims to:

  • collect and classify handwritten and documentary source material dating from the 19th century oral traditions gathering programme;
  • ensure duplication and provision of the above;
  • prepare the edition of collected texts;
  • organize scientific meetings with similar institutions in France and abroad;
  • host CBRC study days and conferences which involve lecturers-researchers from various UBO departments.

Since 1997, study days have been organized on topics revolving around oral literature. The centre also has a collection of documents (periodicals, general works on Brittany and oral literature) which may be consulted by prior appointment.
