RESEARCH LINES, TEAMS and PROJECTS

Líne 1. Linguistics and Society

The doctoral theses proposed in this line of research will be based on two main pillars: on the one hand, linguistic variations/varieties as a product of their social, space, time, cultural, technological or gender context, as well as the contact between languages; on the other hand, the language codifying tendencies, as promoted by the teaching, the academia and other institutions by means of grammars, dictionaries, usage guides or textbooks.



Line 2. Literature and literary translation in its sociocultural context 

The doctoral theses proposed in this line of research will have their starting point on the study of literary discourses linked to the sociocultural reality, and they will be based on three main pillars: on the one hand, the hybrid nature and the multicultural expression of the discourse and the literary translation; on the other hand, the identity and gender discourses contributions; and finally, the biographic and autobiographic discourse. The peripheral nature of these discourses, and their sociocultural link, provides cohesion to this line of research.



Line 3. The sociocultural influence of classical tradition

The doctoral theses proposed in this line of research will be based on the study of classical tradition, its roots and its continuity in the literature, the language and the thought that have shaped history, and the present of western culture. On the one hand, a special object of research will be the perception of the required classical rhetoric, as a key element in the creation of the textual code and of the literary discourse; on the other hand, the reconfiguration of the topics that come from the popular and mass culture of our time, as a key element of the dialogue between classical and modern cultures, which has become a key aspect of our collective imagination.
