Course Description

Philosophy of Art & Culture - Structured

This is an exciting new inter-institutional structured PhD programme, developed collaboratively by the Philosophy departments at NUI Galway and Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, with the Department of History at the University of Limerick. By blending expertise from the three partner institutions, this programme seeks to explore the philosophy of art and culture in an intellectually enriched setting, combining Analytic and Continental Philosophy. The programme will also act as more general focus for research by providing a hub of activity with true interdisciplinary significance.

The Objectives of the Programme are:

To initiate students into, and consolidate their knowledge of, theories and methodologies that are basic to research in all aspects of philosophy of art and culture;

To develop the students capacity to pursue research independently and in collaboration with others and in broader networks of international research contacts

To encourage students to formulate their work in such a way as to be presentable at conferences and colloquia at both the national and international level;

To enable students to teach and develop their research to international standards through specialist disciplinary education;

To provide students with a strong foundation in theoretical and methodological principles;

To develop students skills as active researchers, as well as enable them to engage with their peers through research networks and collaborative research
