Doctoral School Image, Language, Figure: Forms and Modes of Mediation  

PhD ILF Logo

The doctoral course aims to offer an advanced and innovative curriculum, designed to integrate theoretical research in disciplines such as aesthetics, philosophy of language, semiotics, visual culture, media studies and inclusivity studies. Through the multidisciplinary expertise provided by the Teaching Board the Image/Figure/Language triad will be explored; the triad refers to the fundamental mediation devices between human beings and the world and the interactions of human beings with each other. Of these mediation devices, the doctorate intends to explore theoretical, methodological and epistemological models along five axes corresponding to as many curricula:

  • A. Aesthetics
  • B. Semiotics
  • C. Philosophy of languages
  • D. Visual culture and media theory
  • E. Image, language and social inclusion

Those in possession of a Master's Degree, or an equivalent qualification from a foreign university, may apply for admission to the PhD programme. Applications for admission must be submitted no later than 2 pm on 26 July 2023.
