Series of Talks and Round Tables: Interpellations based on The Silence of the Earth. (Post)colonial visualities intersected by Diamang’s archive

Next Friday, 14th May, begins the Cycle of Conferences and Round Tables: “The Silence of the Earth. (Post)colonial visualities intersected by the Diamang archive”. With a hybrid format (face-to-face and online), the first session will feature the participation of Francisco Azevedo Mendes and Patrícia Leal.

The critical itinerary of this cycle departs from the exhibition The Silence of the Earth. It aims to promote extended reflections and an interdisciplinary questioning of the experience of Portugal’s late colonial period, from the perspective of the coexistence of times or intertwined times.

The cycle includes 7 sessions, each subordinated to a particular issue, namely: archives; discourses and languages; labor: domination and resistance; race and gender; emancipatory movements; culture and interactions; cinematographic languages: aesthetics and politics (2 sessions).

Cycle Coordinators:
Fátima Moura Ferreira (Lab2PT)
Moisés Lemos Martins (CECS)
Fernando Bessa (CICS.NOVA. UMinho)
Luís Cunha (CRIA. UMinho)

This cycle is organised by the Landscape, Heritage and Territory Laboratory (Lab2PT.UMinho), the Communication and Society Research Centre (CECS), the Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Centre (CICS. UMinho) and the Research Network Centre in Anthropology (CRIA. UMinho).
