Goals of the
Doctoral School

To provide the consortium of doctorate programs with a cutting edge international doctoral activity through visiting researchers linked to ASETEL.

The thematic area selected for this first edition of the School responds to the need to tackle, from different methodologies, a relevant space among the most recent trends in Literary Theory and Comparative Literature, while being transversal enough to appeal students coming from different disciplinary profiles (Humanities and Social Sciences).

The School offers its participants a unique opportunity by providing direct contact with leading international figures and national specialist researchers belonging to the ASETEL network and the Doctoral School in Humanities, Social and Legal Sciences (UGR) in the research domain selected.

To offer our students the possibility of presenting the research plan of their doctoral thesis projects in order to receive feedback from the invited professors such as tutor teachers and chairs (both from ASETEL and from the participating EIP doctoral programs).

To enable the formation of a research network among the participants themselves, multiplying their contacts on both a national and an international level. They will benefit greatly from this in their future as researchers.

To provide guidance on the developement of the academic career, as well as information on possibilities and better options for the publication and dissemination of each doctoral thesis in its specific field of study, these being theoretical-literary, comparative, cultural studies, etc.
