1. New programme: Linguistic, Literary and Cultural Studies (code HDK0P)

Research track

101207 Construction and representation of cultural identities

This research track seeks to help students master the tools necessary for advanced levels of research and critical analysis of literary and cultural discourses in our increasingly globalized, multicultural societies, where the co-existence of languages and cultures leads to the construction of plural identities. It aims to strengthen theoretical, critical and cultural competences, as well as skills pertaining to the study of literary texts and the comparative analysis of various artistic languages (cinema, theatre), necessary for completing a doctoral thesis.
