research in the area, run teaching-oriented activities and, at the end of the program, submit a dissertation, a result of the research conducted, which will be evaluated by a panel. The
graduate students of the research line “Creation Processes and Poetics of Everyday Life” also perform, at the end, an exposition of their production in Visual Arts as a culmination of their research throughout the program.
