 PhD in COMPARATIVE STUDIES: LANGUAGES, LITERATURES AND ARTS

SHORT DESCRIPTION

The aim of the scientific discipline known as “Comparative Studies” is to identify relationships between authors, texts, works of art, movements and phenomena of different cultures so as to highlight their characteristic aspects in terms of both continuity and specificity.

In the contemporary era of multiculturalism and globalization, as the  dissemination of ideas becomes increasingly more rapid and widespread, an openness to alterity acquires fundamental significance and impacts linguistic, literary and artistic experiences, thereby modifying consolidated models and creating new ones.

On the basis of these considerations, and also with reference to recent interchanges within the European Union regarding cultural policies, the comparativist approach permits an important and original expansion of the themes and perspectives of recent research in linguistics, literature and art history.

Thus, the main objectives of the doctoral programme focus on preparing scholars with excellent critical, analytical skills in the fields of literature, languages and art history.

The tools and methodologies acquired by the doctoral candidates in their chosen fields of study will be enhanced and strengthened thanks to the typically comparativist contributions inherent in the comparison of different cultures, languages, literatures, artistic pieces and their contexts. Within the basic uniformity of the doctoral programme, four curricula areoffered: Foreign Languages and Literatures; Italian Studies; Art History; Literary Theory and Italian Linguistics.

The professional figures formed by the Doctorate must be able to carry out the activities of high-level multicultural operators, in order to work in the cultural industry, in the University, in national, European and international institutions, in order to take part to and promote projects of research and intervention launched by the European Union or by other organizations (such as UNESCO, the OECD, etc.), by international research centers and by Italian institutions and foundations involved in the areas pertaining to the PhD program.

The high qualification achieved will allow PhDs to exercise their scientific skills both in the public sector (libraries, archives, cultural heritage, Ministries, Local Authorities, museum circuits) and in the private sector (newspapers, publishing, research centers, touristic companies and other types of companies). Furthermore they will be able to use the skills provided by the PhD programme also as an enrichment for future teachers and managers in the School of all levels.
