Event

Fulbright Visiting Scholar from Brazil, Rodrigo Xavier, PhD, to present a lecture on Lusophone Identity: A lecture on José Saramago’s Journals

This lecture aims to present some questions that involve José Saramago’s political stance and make it possible to grant him the denomination of Intellectual. Either in their field of action, the Literature, or in his public life as a Portuguese citizen, the production and the political posture of the writer deal with the national social concerns and confer to him an extremely important role in the scenario of the literature in the second half of the 20th Century.
