Fabio Mourilhe

Fabio Mourilhe is postdoctoral researcher and collaborator professor at PPGAV / EBA / UFRJ.

His current work deals with the image in comics with his models of production, functions,

nature, transformations and significations, and its relations with other visual arts and

imaginaries of mass culture and popular culture. This approach is accompanied by issues

concerning the philosophy of the image, philosophy of art and contemporary aesthetics. This

research profile is in consonance with the academic production of the Image and Culture

research line of PPGAV and the group of philosophy of image studies Imaginata. He has a PhD

in philosophy at IFCS / UFRJ, his thesis "The aesthetics of the grotesque in comics", defended in

2014, deals with an extension of his study on the theme held in 2011. He was enrolled in a

doctor-sandwich program with Richard Shusterman in 2013 at FAU (USA). He holds a Master's

degree in Design from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) (2006),

latest lines of research from 2011 were developed and organized into study groups,

publications and presentations in an annual rate combined with the Colloquium philosophy

“Sandman” by Neil Gaiman. Before that, it dealt with the relationship between comics and

philosophy (2011), articulations of comics and art (2012), the grotesque (2013), eroticism

(2014), and Charlie Hebdo (2015). He has professional experience in website design and sound
