Abstract

This research has focused on the changes of paradigm that digital technology and globalization have exerted in the study of the literary act. The methodology has been guided by the constant integration of literary, pedagogical and technological reflection around Digital Literature and Creative Writing.

In our Research Group LEETHI we have created different Webs to approach Literature in the classroom. One of the is our DIGITAL LIBRARY TROPOS. It has developed innovative approaches, and anticipated uses of the computer, highlighting both the limits and the rich potential of the digital. Always creative, it continues to propose new possibilities, as a way of subverting the normative practices that the industry is trying to impose. Digital literature exploits the traditional computer as well as mobiles, tablets, social networks, geolocalisation and all the environments that the digital creates. It is forward-facing. That's why engaging in this initiative at the intersection of technology and creativity will be of interest to many disciplines. It will be an asset of particular benefit to tomorrow’s creative professionals, whether they are working in the humanities, in artistic or literary fields.
