The PhD in Catalan Language and Literature and Theatre Studies is the continuation of a PhD of the same name, the result of a fusion of two long running programmes at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona: the PhD in Catalan Language and Literature and the PhD in Theatre Studies. The training of researchers in different branches of language study comprising synchronic study, geographical and social variation as well as the main application of linguistic expertise (acquisition of Catalan as a first or second language, correction, advisory, ICT applications, etc.). The area of literary studies includes the study of the history of Catalan literature from its origins up to the present, criticism, interrelationships with social, cultural, artistic and literary movements in Catalonia and (mainly) Europe, text editing, interrelationship between literature and journalism and epistolary genres, among others. Apart from Catalan theatre studies, the branch of theatre studies allows for consideration of hypothetical Europeanism in the different plays, the relationship of European plays to Catalan theatre, the international projection of theatre companies and playwrights and the social applications of working in theatre and with minority plays.
