  1. Hermeneia Grup de Recerca

    With financial support obtained from earning a research award from the department of Innovation, Universities and Enterprise by the Generalitat de Catalunya and with help of other grants from several research institutions, in 2000, Laura Borràs Castanyer initiated HERMENEIA along with a research group that determines the contents published on HERMENEIA´s web presence. For a decade, Borràs founding group of editors including Joan-Elies Adell, Raffaele Pinto, Giovanna di Rosario, Perla Sassón-Henry, Raine Koskimaa, Markku Eskelinen, and Juan Gutiérrez, worked together in cooperation with researchers from American and European universites (e.g. Brown University, USA and the University of Jyväskylä in Finland), to offer an international gaze of the digital literature phenomenon“ on a freely accessible web site. While over the years the infrastructure of the group and its members changed, the objective remained obviously the same: the group investigates in literary studies, electronic literature, and digital technologies.

    Digital Culture (called Humanistic Informatics until August 2009) is the study of social, cultural, ethical and aesthetic aspects of Information and Communication Technology. Our main focus is digital arts and culture and the interaction between culture and technology. In our studies of digital culture we emphasize that theoretical, historical and analytical approaches to understanding digital culture must be accompanied by a practical understanding of the technology.
