Summary

Our PhD Italian Studies programme enables you to carry out a piece of significant and original research at a department that undertakes internationally recognised research that is both wide-ranging and markedly interdisciplinary.

We have a particular focus on Modernism, the history of the book and periodical studies, late medieval and Renaissance literary and cultural studies, translation studies, and linguistics.

A considerable number of PhD candidates in Italian have pursued research across fields from the medieval to modern, including linguistics, often supported by funding secured from major AHRC research project awards.

Italian was also at the forefront of the relaunch of the John Rylands Research Institute , based at the University's special collections, securing PhD bursaries for candidates working on the world-class holdings of early Italian printed books and manuscripts from the Spencer, Christie and Bullock collections.

Staff are also involved in collaborations with colleagues from institutions across the world, and have secured visiting professorships, fellowships and grants at Harvard University, the Folger Library, the Morgan Library and the British School in Rome.

Our research culture is further enhanced by the presence of visiting professors and lecturers from Italy and the USA, participation in the interdisciplinary seminars held by CIDRAL , and our own research seminars.
