Unisalento launches the Call for applications to the 37th Cycle Ph.D. Research Course in “Sciences for Cultural Heritage”


The call for applications for the competitive selection procedure for admission to the three-year Doctoral (Ph.D.) Research Course in “Sciences for Cultural Heritage” at the University of Salento is now open.

The educational course of the Doctorate explores themes related to the study of cultural heritage (from prehistory to the present). Although it is divided into two chronologically differentiated curricula (Antiquity and from Middle Ages to Contemporary Age), the course presents a strongly interwoven structure: particular attention is thus paid to the methodological aspects, which are multidisciplinary, in order to improve knowledge and development of the cultural heritage. The themes below touch upon different scientific disciplinary sectors and chronological periods: they synthetize the main research orientations related to both the study of immaterial, anthropological, archeological and artistic heritage, and the processes of conservation and enhancement:

-Historical processes and contexts; social and economic dynamics -Exchange between cultures -Visual culture -History of settlement -Production and exchange -Architecture, town-planning and fine arts -Theoretical and methodological approaches to the reconstruction of historical landscapes -Patrons, artists, observers, critics. -Social history of art: contexts and markets -Religious traditions and folklore rituals according to an anthropological point of view -Conservation and restoration methods applied to cultural heritage -Methods and technologies applied to the communication strategy and valorization of cultural heritage -Reception, documentation and musealization of cultural heritage

Applications for the competitive selection procedure must be made within and not after 13:00 (Italian time) on 8th July 2021.
