Rodrigo Xavier is an Associate Professor of Lusophone Studies (Linguistics and Literature) at Technologic Federal University of Paraná (Brazil), and is currently a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at the University of Chicago (USA).  His research is in the Department of German Studies under the guidance of Professor David E. Wellbery. His experience in the areas of Lusophone Literature and Comparative Literature investigates the relationship between literature, philosophy and other arts.

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.

This event is free and open to the public and the lecture will be in English.
