In 2001 Hermeneia received public recognition and its first funding from the Generalitat de Catalunya which in 2009 would recognize Hermeneia as a consolidated research group. Hermeneia is composed of 23 researchers from European and American universities: Universitat de Barcelona, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Universidad de Granada, American University (Madrid), Universté d'Artois (France), University of Essex (U.K),Università degli studi di Bari,Universtiy of Jyväskylä (Finland), Brown University (USA), United States Naval Academy, University of Miami, Universidad Pontificia Javeriana (Colombia) y Faculdade Paulista de Artes (Brazil). One of the most outstanding qualities of this international research group is its ability to establish a rich dialogue with different perspectives on digital literature as a revolutionary and changing phenomenon. Since its inception, Hermeneia has embraced the participation of international researchers in a project that requires the exchange of ideas and dialogue among researchers from different academic fields and with an international perspective. As Hermeneia has advanced in its scholarly development, new renowned researchers key to the areas of research of this group have been incorporated. At the same time, Hermeneia has also expanded its cultural projects, initiatives, educational networks and collaborators, thus making possible awide rangeof relationships that result in a polyhedric and multidisciplinary vision of the objects of research.
