Conferência Internacional Coffee, Bread & Chocolate: Representations, Receptions and Cultural Frontiers

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


Subject to anthropological, historical, literary, linguistic, economic, political and cultural(ist) approaches, the cultural institutions of coffee, bread and chocolate have benefited from both conceptually restricted and wide interdisciplinary evaluations in the last half century, more precisely since Cultural Studies and gradually Material Culture and Modernity Studies have occupied the forestage of onetime merely literary issues. Both have deep roots now in current analyses of cultural identity and boast relevant assessments of chronotopic diversity and difference as guarantees of unbiased critical appraisal. And this applies to no end of cultures, from the Westernmost to the Easternmost spaces of interest to our cultivated minds and curious souls, to culture tout court. This is as much as saying that imagological and culturalist tools operate at ease within their territory, able to secure the open analytical embrace thus proposed.
