The Double Degree PhD programme in Philospophy in partnership with the University Ca’ Foscari Venezia is aimed at ensuring students gain complete proficiency in both the study of texts dating from the origins of the Italian language to the current day, and in parallel, the study of works in foreign languages which are produced in those same historical geographical and cultural contexts as the products of visual culture.
At use are hermeneutic and comparative, philological, linguistic, historical-critical methodologies, which are applied to written and visual texts expressed in Italian produced by both Italian and foreign authors, as well as those written by Italian authors in the modern foreign languages.
Cross-border literary, language and visual studies
Relationships between Italian and foreign literature, languages and cultures;
History of the Italian literature, language and culture;
Publishing comment, and interpretation of literary texts from the middle ages to contemporary times;
