MOVÊNCIAS INTERDISCIPLINARES DA UTOPIA - MINUTO I

 
As members of the research group Literatura & Utopia, we are pleased to
invite you to the congress MOVÊNCIAS INTERDISCIPLINARES DA UTOPIA -
MINUTO I, which we are organizing. The meeting is supported by the
Universidade Federal de Alagoas and the Universidade Tiradentes and will
be held in Maceió, in the state of Alagoas, Brazil, May, 26-30, 2018.
The language spoken during the event will be Portuguese. (Only two
keynote speakers will speak in English, with translations into
Portuguese)
This congress will be a moment of intellectual, cultural, and artistic
sharing, which will provide to its participants the opportunity to
dialog about the multiple faces of the broad phenomenon of utopianism,
which covers (verbal and non-verbal) texts that are part of human
history, from antiquity to contemporary times. The interdisciplinary
approach of the congress stresses the importance of focusing on research
not only in the field of Literary Studies, but also in other fields such
as Gender Studies, Queer Studies, Psychoanalysis, Post- and Decolonial
Studies, Philosophy, Social Sciences, as well as other areas of
knowledge that also deal with the construction of critical views over
the present based on a constant review of the past and, in doing so,
glimpse possible futurities.
 
This will also be the first Brazilian forum for Utopian Studies and we
are looking forward to building a nice academic network. And to building
a space of political resistance in face of the difficult times we are
living due to the present neo-liberal, illegitimate government. Please,
help publicise it.
