The International Conference Arts, Cultures and Media: Intercultural Communication and Technological Landscapes in the Portuguese-speaking world is scheduled for May 25. The scientific event is part of the research project “Memories, Cultures and Identities: the past and present of intercultural relations in Mozambique and Portugal” (Cultures Past & Present) from the University of Aveiro. It is also associated with the 1st Congress of the National Network of Cultural Studies (RNEC), hosted by that university on May 26 and 27.
The programme includes more than 30 papers involving dozens of researchers from universities in Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique and China. The closing ceremony will present the book Abrir os Gomos do Tempo: Conversas Sobre Cinema em Moçambique, edited by researchers Ana Cristina Pereira and Rosa Cabecinhas. It will also screen the film The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis (2020), as part of the centenary of José Saramago and the initiative “100 hours with Saramago”.
The event is organised by the Virtual Museum of Lusophony, the University of Madeira, Mackenzie University of São Paulo and the University of Minho.
