AREA OF CONCENTRATION:

 THEORIES AND INTERDISCIPLINARY POETICAL PROCESSES

The area includes researches based on methodological, practical and theoretical matrices linked to art and culture, gathered around the idea of ​​interdisciplinarity. It embraces subareas of knowledge in the field of the arts in which artistic languages ​​and culture are understood as cross-sectional axes that ground it conceptually. It brings together research professors who conceive research, artistic production and reflection from the mobilization and interlocution of repertoires and subsidies from various fields of research in the fields of Human Sciences, Social Sciences and the intersections with technologies.

 

Lines of research:

ART, FASHION: HISTORY AND CULTURE

This line of research investigates visual arts and fashion in their movements of reflection and production, from theoretical and methodological approaches based on processes and historical and cultural interpretations, in the convergence with the field of ​ Human Sciences. It covers projects whose themes are focused on artistic processes, critical, historical and sociological analyses of art and/or fashion in regional, national and international contexts.

CINEMA AND AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA

This line of research focuses on practical productions and theoretical reflections on the cinema and audiovisual media with a theoretical reference focused on the issues related to narrative, aesthetics and the history of cinema. It problematizes issues that are articulated with the authorial dimension, gender, film analysis and narrative constructions and their sociocultural implications, in an interdisciplinary dialogue with other arts and fields of knowledge.

ARTS AND MUSIC STUDIES 

This line of research brings together theoretical and practical productions that explore and investigate the relations between artistic languages, works of art, the “juxtaposition” of two or more language systems, and the “transposition” of one system by another one, the relationships between “texts” in two or more systems. It also investigates creative musical activities including “music and new media”, “music and other arts”, “music, science and technology”.
