PresentationThe Literary Tradition, Written Culture and Digital Humanities Doctoral Programme is integrated into the research strategy and doctoral training of the University of Salamanca and in the doctoral tradition of the Instituto Universitario de Investigación Ortega y Gasset linked to the Ortega-Marañón Foundation in Madrid .
This Doctoral Programme brings together, as stated in the title, two areas of traditional and innovative knowledge that are interconnected thanks to the new information and communication technologies. On the one hand, written culture and letters and critical thinking in its broadest sense; on the other, the digitization of knowledge and its ease of accessing and disseminating it. It is, therefore, a doctorate that includes modernity within the humanistic tradition linked to texts, thus continuing the tradition and the specific weight that the Humanities always had at the University of Salamanca.Lines of investigationHumanism
