Skills
Topic Description Research area
Bioethics, Biolaw and Literature Bioethics and biolaw are two philosophical approaches that address social tensions and conflicts caused by emerging bioscientific and biomedical research and their application. Literature deals with this topics especially in contemporary production. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Science Fiction / Literature & Science
Law and the Body The body is the focus of the social, legal, and cultural imagination and the privileged metaphor for specific cultural discourses and political practices. The Renaissance literature particularly echoes these topics. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Critical Theory & Poetics
Ecocriticism and British Literature/culture Ecocriticism deals with the ecological approach to literary studies. It aims at bringing a transformation of literary studies by linking literary criticism and theory with the ecological issues at large. Ecocriticism is directly concerned with both nature (natural landscape) and the environment (landscape both natural and urban)as described in literary texts . Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Critical Theory & Poetics
Equity: literary and juridical intersections Equity is a protean concept that covers the fields of law, philosophy of law, and morality. In the history of human ideas the problem of equity has been inseparable from that of justice. This theme is re-echoed throughout English literature in particular in Shakespeare's plays. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Critical Theory & Poetics
Iconology of the law in Literature The project investigates the link between law, literature and the image. It aims to explore how the study of law and literature can be enhanced by a critical study of iconology. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Visual Arts & Image Studies
The concept of power in the Renaissance The link between words and images is at the basis of the semiotic texture of any culture. This theory can be explored by analyzing the connection between legal words and images in the representation of power in the Renaissance. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Theatre
Literature and the Visual Arts The study of literature and visual arts is linked to the deep connection between words and images, telling and seeing. The visual aspects of literature, as well as the mutual illuminations of the two expressive modes, are related to the rhetorical and stylistic choices of authors. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Visual Arts & Image Studies
Literature and Fashion studies The methodological approach of "Literature and fashion studies" analyses fashion’s mythic dimension and suggests that fashion is a language in itself. The methodological tools offered by fashion studies will be applied to the analysis of different novels in order to explore the impact and meaning of fashion in past and contemporary culture, and to investigate how fashion’s mythologies are constructed and disseminated through fictional texts. It will also examine how fashion, as a form of fiction, can be said to constitute a “power technology”: fashion can consort with hegemonic norms as a regulating force that can incite conformity, but sometimes resistance as well. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Cultural Studies and Mentalities
Literature and medicine The interdisciplinary study of literature and medicine highlights the constant dialogue between literature and society. What is the importance of literature to the field of medicine? The most relevant aspect in this study is the possibility of a cultural interpretation of medicine that examines how literature can contribute both to the philosophy of medicine and to medical practice. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Science Fiction / Literature & Science
Filmic adaptations and novels This approach places strong emphasis on the process of adaptation of literary texts to filmic format, with particular attention to the ways in which narrative is rendered. The literary analysis of the texts is integrated with a critical visual analysis in order to explore how the formal properties of texts can be applied to and transformed into new visual formats. Letteratura inglese e letterature anglofone
ENGLISH LITERATURE - Film Studies
Shakespeare and the law There is a flourishing production on Shakespeare featuring legal problems in the last twenty years. The Law and Literature movement, born in the United States, has given rise to an endelss re-interpretation of Shakespearean texts according to the many legal elements he discusses about.
