This year's summer school

This year’s Summer School ASETEL focus on theatre, film and performance linked to the issue of fiction and the real as well as the methodological boundaries to those two aspects in relation to intermediality and transmediality. The thematic area selected for this third edition of the School responds to the need to tackle—from different methodologies and areas: theatre, drama, performance, intermediality and transmediality— a relevant space among the most recent trends in Literary Theory and Comparative Literature, while being transversal enough to appeal students coming from different disciplinary profiles (Humanities and Social Sciences).

Languages of the school

The seminars and workshops taught by invited foreign professors will be held in English, but the School will use both English and Spanish as its languages of communication.

Early Bird Deadline

June 1st 2022

Regular Deadline (extended!)

September 1st 2022

100% onsite

At the University of Granada


Young students (Master, PhD candidates, postdoc) researching Literary Theory and Comparative Literature, Drama Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies as well as Film Studies or other areas and disciplines related to Literary Studies or Social Sciences linked to Communication, whose research project can benefit from theoretical-methodological perspectives belonging to intermediality and transmediality studies. 

Main goals

The School aims to provide the consortium of doctorate programs with a cutting edge international doctoral activity through visiting researchers linked to ASETEL.

The School offers its participants a unique opportunity by providing direct contact with leading international figures and national specialist researchers belonging to the ASETEL network and the Doctoral School in Humanities, Social and Legal Sciences (UGR) in the research domain selected.

The School offer our students the possibility of presenting the research plan of their doctoral thesis projects in order to receive feedback from the invited professors such as tutor teachers and chairs (both from ASETEL and from the participating EIP doctoral programs).

It also enables the students with the formation of a research network among the participants themselves, multiplying their contacts on both a national and an international level. They will benefit greatly from this in their future as researchers.

Last but not least, it provides guidance on the development of the academic career, as well as information on possibilities and better options for the publication and dissemination of each doctoral thesis in its specific field of study, these being theoretical-literary, comparative, cultural studies, etc.
