Learning outcomes
Achievement of a fine strategy for scientific research on literary texts. This methodology entails a wide-ranging approach to the texts, involving critical editions, analyses on literary reception, inquiries on formal, linguistic, stylistic levels. Such a stratified methodology clearly provides expertise and skills for a variety of "itinera" and professions: in particular for academic research and teaching, for teaching in high school (also in view of an ongoing update of educational programmes and lines), for publishing and journalism.
Activities to be carried out by Doctoral candidates
Bibliographic inquiries and text readings. Original research focusing on a wide range of advanced issues (including reading of manuscripts and ancient editions, consultation of archives, processing of digital archives and online data, analyses based on philological and linguistic perspectives) for the achievement of a fine methodology for scientific research on literary texts such as critical editions and the study of literary reception and history of ideas.
Research training activities compliant with the Doctoral programme's learning outcomes
