The IETT's current research agenda was organized along three main lines overarched by a global concern "Well-being, Ecology and Technological Society", a focus intended to complicate and nourish our intellectual project beyond linguistic and geo-cultural divisions of knowledge. Within this global, overarching concern the transcultural approach has addressed, through the analysis of textual practice in its broadest sense, the fields of environment (ecocriticism englobing the ways in which textual practitioners interrogate in diverse ways how we inhabit the world), health and well-being (constantly challenged by the imperatives of the technological society: efficiency-growth-repetition), and of food and nutrition (a source of creativity and the unquestionable circulation of tastes and imaginaries but also of the unequal distribution of wealth and of the threat to human survival in a society dominated by a techno-economic logic).
