Research themes

The UMR Litt&Arts (joint research unit) brings together research professors who work in all areas of literature—ancient and modern, French and comparative, literary didactics, the sociology of art, the anthropology of the imaginary, digital humanities and performing and screen arts.

One of Litt&Arts’ main aims is to carefully analyse what “literary” may signify in the 21st century, when literature has taken such a wide range of forms and whose importance must continually be affirmed. Another goal is to give meaning to the name Litt&Arts by considering the modernisation practices and interpretation techniques at work in our relationships to text, image, screens and the stage.

Research is based on four main cross-disciplinary themes:

All of these overarching research areas are trans-secular, reposition traditional disciplines in reworked contexts and propose innovative ways to combine research and creation, knowledge and experience, teaching and experimentation.

Research activities are supported by seven research centres:
