Research

Italian Studies staff works within the LCL School’s dynamic research areas, and are therefore able to supervise and co-supervise MA and PhD projects both within and outside their own program.  The principal affiliation is with RISL.

We welcome applications from prospective PhD students wishing to conduct research within the areas of expertise of our staff. The research strength and supervision areas of the Italian Studies staff are:

  • Cinema and theatre
  • Cultural and literary studies
  • Gender and feminist theories
  • Translation studies
  • Transcultural studies
  • Women writers

If you intend to work on a project that encompasses Italian Studies and another discipline, we will organize the necessary complement research expertise to meet your supervision needs.
