The PhD programme provides students with high-level education and research experience in foreign languages and literatures, by integrating relevant methodologies, including Digital Humanities (DH), and developing advanced theoretical and critical awareness, in a multicultural and multilingual perspective. Phd students will acquire analytical and critical skills that will allow them to conduct research autonomously in various fields of study.
In the Foreign Literatures and Cultures track, literary works, cultural movements and critical theories will be studied in an interdisciplinary and intercultural perspective, with particular attention to philological, historical, philosophical, aesthetic and cultural aspects, as well as to literary translation.
In the Foreign Languages and Translation track, foreign languages will be studied in their various expressions, also with reference to linguistic variation. Particular attention will be paid to terminology, lexicology and lexicography, also from a contrastive and translational point of view.
