The 2002 Watch Project aims at identifying the complexities of the education and development of youngsters, which continues to revolve on reading and sees the competition of other media, such as television and the Internet.
The paper describes the education and development of young Europeans which for over twenty years has no longer followed the directive of school education and reading of books.
The project observes the new literary genres and forms of leisure and knowledge generated by the media culture; the media culture first appeared in European countries at the beginning of the 1980s.
Reconstructing the quantity and types of factually accessed fiction is needed to decode the use and function of the novel genre. The novel system on which group is working is a subsection of current narrative system in European countries of the new Millennium.
