On the 26th of March, at 2:30 pm, the next Doctoral Seminar on Communication Sciences and Cultural Studies will take place. Luís Fernandes, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto, is the guest; “Ethnography: considerations about the method and reflections on a practice” is the theme.
Luís Fernandes is an associate professor at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto, where he teaches since 1985 and directed the Center for Sciences of Deviant Behavior between 2005 and 2017. He is also the coordinator of the area of deviant behaviour and justice in the master’s degree in psychology at FPCEUP. Luís Fernandes is a member of the National Council of Psychologists and the Ethics Committee of the Portuguese Psychologists Order. He is a member of the Scientific and Editorial Board of U.Porto Press (publisher of the University of Porto).
The central theme of his research work is the characterization of the drug phenomenon in an urban context – a social ecology of actors and psychotropic territories. The conflictual evolution of this phenomenon in large urban spaces led him to research the feeling of insecurity, marginality and the socio-territorial expression of the processes of segregation and the production of inequalities.
In the interventional field, he has paid special attention to deviance social control strategies and risk reduction and harm minimization policies.
In recent years he has developed an interest in the field of corporeality (body image; lived body; embodiment; bodily phenomena).
The session will take place through the Zoom platform.
