IV Congresso Internacional de Cultura Lusófona Contemporânea

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


The CICLC has been organized since 2012 at the School of Education and Social Sciences of the Polytechnic Institute of Portalegre. In that year, the theme was “The Woman in Literature and Other Arts”, and the poet Maria Teresa Horta was with us. In 2015, we received Pilar del Rio and there was talk of “Representations of the Other: Olhares Plurais”. In the 2018 edition, Fronteiras e Horizontes – space (s) and time (s) for dialogue occupied us and we welcomed Professor Innocence Mata, who spoke to us about Portuguese speaking and post-coloniality.
In its fourth edition, CICLC joins the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of the degree in Journalism at ESECS-IPP, by choosing the chronicle as its theme.
Etymologically derived from chronos – time – the chronicle was confused with historiography until the 19th century, when the expansion of the press and journalism reinvented it and made it reborn with the features we know today.
The notoriety of the form, attested by its prevalence in the traditional media, by the migration of the form to online platforms, along with the fortune it enjoys in the publishing market, seems to meet a new popular maxim: Lusophony is a nation of chroniclers.
