Vittoria Fallanca

DPhil Candidate

I am a DPhil student in French, working on a thesis about the notion of design in relation to Montaigne's Essais. My research interests span the fields of literature, philosophy and art history, with a particular emphasis on the act of drawing and its links (including, but not limited to, semiotic and cognitive) to the act of writing. In addition to Montaigne, I have written about the figure of Anteros in sixteenth century French writing, and the French painter Nicholas Poussin.
