The Linguistics section focuses on phenomena that demonstrate the link between language and society, giving priority to modern/contemporary studies (19th, 20th, and 21st centuries). Starting with the conviction that language is first and foremost a social phenomenon, researchers in this section adopt a sociolinguistic and discourse analytic approach. The specific research interests of the section are also reflected in extracurricular activities (conferences, workshops, invited speakers, etc.).
The professors/lecturers of the literature section share interests across the following fields, regardless of their specific research areas:
- Spanish narratives of the XX-XXI centuries
- Literary theory, with special attention to interartistic (Visual Culture Studies) and transareal phenonema (Spain/Latin America)
- Re-reading the canon and reception theory (XVI-XXI centuries)
- Editing (critical, genetic, digital) of manuscripts and texts from the Golden Age to the 21st century
