Research lines

Following the goals previously traced and taking into account our research profiles, we have articulated our activities following three avenues of inquiry:

1. The construction of the discourse of (post)modernity in East Asia as a manifestation of cross-cultural processes (Seán Golden, Carles Prado).

2. The role of East Asian cultural products in the West and vice versa: processes of adaptation, incorporation, re-elaboration and suppression (Sara Rovira, Jordi Mas, Albert Nolla).

3. Ethnicity and cultural diversity in East Asia: dynamics of linguistic contact, identity construction, diaspora and international relations (Joaquín Beltrán, Helena Casas, Makiko Fukuda).
