The VIII Congress on Cultures will take place at the University of Minho from December 5 to 7, 2022. The registration process takes place between October 31 and November 20.
The VIII Congress on Cultures draws on the idea that we have to give space to the Cultures of Resistance, considering the technological conditions of our time. Photography, cinema, radio, video, television and, above all, digital technologies guide us like prostheses of emotion production, as machines that shape in us a crank-handled sensibility.
So what role has digital media played in the cultural resistance process? How have the movements for human rights, environmental protection, and the decolonisation of language, knowledge and thought developed in this context? What has been the role of counter-hegemonic cultural practices in transforming contemporary power relations?
