La tavola rotonda si propone di discutere il processo che dalla Filologia può portare alla Critica letteraria, con particolare attenzione alla metodologia e ai "nuovi" strumenti di lavoro (internet, archivi digitali, ecc.).

Si sollecitano contributi su studi e lavori conclusi o in corso di svolgimento concernenti il diciannovesimo, ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo.
