Session “Aesthetics, Politics and Cinematographic Languages I

The second session of the cycle of conferences and roundtables “Interpelações a partir d’ O Silêncio da Terra. (Post)colonial visualities intersected by the Diamang archive”. With a hybrid format (in-person and online), the session “Aesthetics, politics and cinematographic languages I” will have the participation of Ana Cristina Pereira (CES, University of Coimbra) and Rosa Cabecinhas (CECS, University of Minho) and will be moderated by Francisco Ferreira (Lab2PT, University of Minho).

The critical itinerary of this cycle is designed under the horizon of the exhibition The Silence of the Earth. It aims to promote extended interdisciplinary questionings and reflections on the experience of late Portuguese colonialism, from the perspective of the coexistence of times or of intertwined times.

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

The second session will take place in the Main Hall of the Rectory of the University of Minho, on Zoom and YouTube.

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