Annual reports

Annual report
  • Classical, traditional and modern Poetics and Rhetoric.
    Study of Poetics and Rhetoric understood as sciences of discourse and its communication and considered as theoretical-methodological spaces in which we can syntactically, semantically and pragmatically —i.e. semiotically— locate and contextualize the reality of the literary text as a structural construction, as a construction of poetic meaning and as a pragmatic construction.
  • Interdiscursive analysis.
    Development of interdiscursive analysis as a theoretical-critical instrument for the description and explanation of rhetorical and literary discursivity, both in the construction of particular texts and in the configuration of historical and current Literary theory and Rhetoric as disciplines.
  • Literary language theory.
    Study of the theoretical-methodological assumptions and the descriptive and explanatory achievements of all those theoretical-literary and critical-literary trends concerned in one way or another with the problem of the construction of the literary text (whether from exclusively linguistic-immanentist points of view, or from linguistic-textual perspectives with semiotic amplitude), covering perfectly the syntactic-semiotic dimension of the literary fact, but also its semantic-semiotic and pragmatic dimensions.
  • Empirical theory of literature.
    Empirical study of the social system of literary actions or system of LITERATURE, i.e. the set of social actions related to the communicative processes of the literary text (production, transmission or mediation, reception and criticism or transformation), in order to extend pragmatically and empirically the object of attention from the literary text to the literary fact.
  • Neurocognitive poetics.
    Application of cognitive studies and neuroaesthetics to the theory and criticism of the literary text, specifically, to the analysis of the gestural and corporal component in the construction of the literary sign, to the establishment of the empathic link and intersubjectivity between the reader and the fictitious characters and to the processes of abstraction with cerebral roots in the information of ideals in literature.
  • Comparative literature.
    Study of Comparative literature and its history, with particular reference to issues such as fictionality, intertextuality, hypertext in the digital era, the nationalist component in literature, the literary canon, otherness and thematology, as well as to the theoretical and critical study of the intersemiotic relations between literature and other arts.
  • Literary translation theory.
    Study of the theories of literary translation from the perspective of their possible interdisciplinary integration with rhetorical theory, on the one hand, and of literary translation as a cultural mechanism within the broad space of globalisation from sociological and intersemiotic points of view, on the other.
  • Hagiographic studies.
    Studies oriented towards the characterisation of the lives of saints as a literary genre in the Middle Ages, its transformation from medieval handwritten methods to printed productions and the analysis of the the peculiarities of Hispanic hagiography in the context of the controversy between Catholics and Protestants.

The TeLiCom research group is made up of lecturers and researchers from the Department of Spanish Studies, General Linguistics and Literary Theory of the University of Alicante, as well as from the Autonomous University of Madrid, the University of Oviedo, the University of Bologna in Italy and the University of Bucharest in Romania. For many years, the group’s research activity has focused on the study of some of the fundamental problems of the literary text in particular — or verbal artwork, which is semiotically understood as a structural construction, as a construction of poetic significance and as a pragmatic construction — and the literary fact or literary phenomenon in general. Considering its research lines, this group addresses the following fields of study in a combined and interdisciplinary manner: 1) classical, traditional and modern poetics and rhetoric, which are understood as sciences of discourse and its communication. These disciplines are considered to be theoretical-methodological spaces in which we can syntactically, semantically and pragmatically — that is, semiotically — locate and contextualize the reality of the literary text as a structural construction, as a construction of poetic significance and as a pragmatic construction. 2) Interdiscursive analysis, as a theoretical-critical instrument of analysis, description and explanation of rhetorical and literary discursiveness, both in the construction of particular texts and in the configuration of literary theory and rhetoric (historically and nowadays) as disciplines. 3) Theory of literary language, which is understood as the set of the theoretical-methodological presuppositions and the descriptive and explanatory achievements of all those theoretical-literary and critical-literary trends that address the problem of the construction of the literary text — whether from an exclusively linguistic-immanentist point of view, or from linguistic-textual perspectives that are wide-ranging in terms of semiotic scope. 4) Empirical literary theory, as a theoretical construction for the empirical study of the social system of literary actions or literature system — production, transmission or mediation, reception and criticism or transformation — and which can propose policy measures — applicability — for the improvement of said social system of actions. 5) Neurocognitive poetics, as the application of cognitive studies and neuroaesthetics to literary theory and criticism, specifically, to the analysis of the gestural and corporal component in the construction of the literary sign, to the establishment of the empathic link and intersubjectivity between the reader and the fictitious characters and to the processes of abstraction, rooted in the brain, in the formation of ideals in literature. 6) Comparative literature, with particular reference to such issues as fictionality, intertextuality, hypertext in the digital era, the nationalist component in Spanish literature, the literary canon, otherness, thematology, as well as to the theoretical and critical study of the relations between literature and other arts. 7) Theory of literary translation, in an enriching relationship of interdisciplinary integration with rhetorical theory and from sociological and intersemiotic points of view. 8) Hispanic hagiography, with regard to the characterisation of the lives of saints as a literary genre in the Middle Ages, its transformation from medieval handwritten texts to printed works and, more recently, the peculiarities of Hispanic hagiography in the context of the controversy between Catholics and Protestants.
