PhD in Performative Arts, Image and Motion

PhD in Performative Arts, Image and Motion

The Doctorate in Arts (Performative Arts and the Image in Movement), jointly created between the University of Lisbon and the Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon, is aimed particularly at the masters in the areas of the Artistic Studies, Humanities and Social Sciences, but also to the relevant curriculum holders in these areas or related areas, and for which the regulation provides for a system of accreditation.

This cycle of studies presents a curriculum organisation that combines compulsory seminars and optional, reconciling the theoretical strand and artistic practice, maintaining this double valence throughout your study plan. It aims to provide students with the knowledge, techniques and supervision necessary to carry out original and solid research work in various subfields of the Artistic Studies, namely Theatre, Cinema, Music and Dance, and all the theoretical extensions of these domains in the area of the Humanities, as well as to allow theoretical reflection on art and art to be able to integrate harmoniously into one research.
