Summer School: The Aesthetics of Aby Warburg (online, 21 Aug–9 Sep 23)

Online / Centro Luís Krus – Formação ao Longo da Vida, Faculty of Social and Human Sciences (FCSH), NOVA University of Lisbon, Aug 21–Sep 9, 2023.

Deadline: July 16, 2023


This course aims at investigating the aesthetics of Aby Warburg (1866–1929) by analysing some of his most important works. Students will develop adequate critical and analytical skills by reading philosophical and interdisciplinary texts on topics concerning interdisciplinary research, cultural memory, empathy, style, symbols, and the biology of images. Furthermore, students will learn to orient themselves in aesthetic thinking, addressing the following questions: How can we explain the recurrence of certain patterns in the history of art? What is the role of biology in cultural memory? What is the role of biology and psychology in the creation of styles? What does it mean to undertake interdisciplinary research?

The course will be entirely in English and is intended for undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral students.

Teacher: Dr. Fabio Tononi

Deadline: 16 July 2023
