Course Summary

Research profile

As a postgraduate research student of Italian studies, you will be exposed to an environment that celebrates both language and culture, through rigorous research and vibrant social events.

Studied informally here at Edinburgh since the late 16th century, Italian was formally added to the curriculum in 1919. Since then it has developed into a broad area of study that engages with both contemporary culture and historical times, when Italy shaped our civilisation.

Postgraduates are an integral part of our research community. We can offer you supervision in:

  • comparative literature
  • digital philology and second language acquisition
  • film studies
  • Italian cultural studies (most areas, including literary studies from the Middle Ages to the present)
  • literary theory
  • translation studies.
