Call for applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan under the supervision of Andrea Pinotti (2017-2018 Paris IAS fellow) and Chiara Cappelletto (2014-2015 Paris IAS fellow)

Description

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan offers a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship on “Aesthetics of Performative Environments: Immersivity, Agency, Avatar”

The Fellow will carry out the activities at the Department of Philosophy of the Università degli Studi di Milano under the supervision of Andrea Pinotti and Chiara Cappelletto.

Description of the research project: Immersive environments impact on artistic practices, professional applications, and everyday life. They convey a sense of embodiment, presence, and augmented existence. Interactivity via avatars opens up new affordances and agencies: novel forms of subjectivity are performed by theatrical and fictional experiences. Drawing on image-theory, theatre and performance studies, the candidate shall explore the phenomenological and epistemological implications of performative environments.

Knowledge of Italian is not required.

The DEADLINE for applications is OCTOBER 16th, 2017 at noon. All documents must be received by this date.
Duration: Two-year renewable.
Grant: €21.000 gross per year. This sum is tax free.
