This master's degree proposal is also deeply related to the publishing world, which is currently undergoing a profound transformation due to the introduction of new technologies.
The generically called “cultural industries” mobilize important resources, in many cases related to important economic and social sectors, such as tourism. Its demand is clearly linked to the occupation of free time. The presence of specialists who are not unrelated to research, who are behind this heritage and who must guide conservation and dissemination plans, is essential.
