Contemporary Social and Cultural Renegotiations in the Portuguese-Speaking World

This panel welcomes papers in Cultural Studies and Literary Criticism that present critical reflections on Literary and Visual Arts portrayals of contemporary life in the Portuguese-speaking countries and their Diasporas. Which are the main struggles faced by these communities? Which strategies of self-articulation and survival have they imagined? Papers that examine dynamics of inclusion or exclusion are particularly welcome. Please send 300-500 word abstracts and brief biographical statement to Luis Gonçalves .
