The 36th cycle of PhD in History of Arts is designed to provide an outstanding scientific and professional qualification with an international perspective in the field of art-historical research and in the promotion of artistic, environmental and local heritage by exploring various disciplinary, thematic and chronological areas - with particular attention to the inter-disciplinary potential of the various forms of expression.

Key areas of focus are the history of architecture, sculpture, painting, miniatures, the sumptuary arts, graphics, photography, and all forms of expression of the visual arts from the Middle Ages to the present day; other areas of focus include the expressive intent and practice of performing arts from theatre to cinema, musicology and ethnomusicology. Our research is based on historical, theoretical and methodological modes of enquiry, and includes artistic literature, the history of taste, patronage and reception of art, of collecting, of the organisation of museums and exhibitions, and of artistic techniques. Particular attention will also be paid to the use of Information and Communication Technologies for the understanding, reception, and promotion of artistic and cultural heritage.

The PhD programme uses learning tools and scientific instruments that will allow students to acquire a systematic knowledge base in the various sectors and benefit from a wide network of international relations offering them the opportunity to acquire advanced skills equipping them for a career in education or in professional sectors linked to research or higher learning institutions.

Study modules and training, delivered by Faculty staff as well as by visiting lecturers from both Italian and international universities, are mainly targeted at students in their first and second year rather than at third-years who will be busy with their dissertations.

Candidates are required to have certified English proficiency at least B2 level - under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) - at the time of enrolment, except for the possibility of acquiring it subsequently, by no later than December 31st, 2020, otherwise they will be excluded from the PhD Programme (see art. 3, paragraph 6 of the call).

Duration: 3 years

Gross amount of the scholarship approximately € 56,500.00 (50% increase in the monthly scholarship for research periods abroad and annual budget for national and international research activities - € 1,534.00 during the 2nd and 3rd year- not included).

Candidates will be admitted to the PhD programme after passing a selection process (evaluation of academic qualifications, written and/or oral examination) according to the conditions indicated in the call.

Applications are currently open. Deadline on April 21st 2020 at 13:00 CET. Total number of scholarships available: 8 among them 3 funded by Project ERC Consolidator 2019 Action “Architectural Culture of the Early Modern Eastern Adriatic”.
