Activity: Hosting a visitorHosting an academic visitor


Prof. Keaney was invited to participate, as a keynote speaker, in the international conference on Invention and Imagination that was held at the NOVA-FCSH in December 2023. Nuno Miguel Proença's invitation was accepted but Prof. Kearney preferred to intervene by zoom and could longly debate with his hosts (NM Proença, Teresa Casal, Teresa Lousa, Adelino Cardoso, Paulo Cardoso de Jesus and Nuno Fonseca, and all the participants of the conference, in loco and online) after his precious keynote talk.
