"What Women?" is one of the 11 "What" thematic axes on which (EU)ROPA - Rise of Portuguese Architecture research is structured, a multifaceted, retrospective and prospective reading of Portuguese architecture. This line of research aims to survey the historical emergence and presence/absence of women in the context of Portuguese architecture, extending the discussion to the reflection and practice of feminisms in the history of Portugal. The aim is, on the one hand, to draw a general picture of the "inscription" of feminism in our context and, on the other hand, to understand in what way architecture was a place of affirmation or exclusion of women, in the Portuguese historical arc from Dictatorship to Democracy.

This online seminar, organised and moderated by the Principal Investigators of projects "(EU)ROPA" and "W@ARCH", respectively Jorge Figueira and Patrícia Santos Pedrosa, will have the participation of Adriana Bebiano, Ana Tostões and Irene Pimentel.
