Online event


This seminar is part of the series The Weft of Memory: dates to count, organised by the coordination of the thematic line Europe and the Global South: heritages and dialogues. The series aims to mark and reflect on less resounding dates, but equally determinant for the construction of the 25th of April 1974 and the independence of Portuguese-speaking African countries and East Timor. The seminars take place online, whenever possible on the date to be marked, every month, at 16h00, throughout 2023.

The seminar is based on some texts from the book Papéis da Prisão Apontamentos, diário, correspondência (1962-1971) and on a reflection on the materiality of the digital collection of José Luandino Vieira's prison texts.
