Without doubt, Italy is a cornerstone of European culture as well as providing a controversial and stimulating area of studies in the modern period.
Kent offers an ideal environment for the postgraduate study of modern Italian society, literature and thought, within a broadly European context. With the research interests of staff covering the modern period, postgraduates can also benefit from the Italian studies interdisciplinary research seminar series and the activities of the newly established Centre for Critical Thought, both coordinated by the Department, which include lectures by prestigious guest speakers. The Department is also running a PhD co-tutelle programme with the Istituto Italiano di Scienze Umane (SUM), one of the leading research institutions in Italy.
We can offer supervision on contemporary Italian critical thought as well as contemporary Italian literature and cultural studies. We welcome postgraduate students who obtained their first degree in Italy.
The research strength of the Italian Department lies at the intersection of critical thought and literary theory. Research at Kent is consciously conceived as interdisciplinary. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your plans at an early stage of your application.
