Abstract

Portugal witnessed major changes in the long years of the 1960s: urbanisation, services and literacy all intensified, while the Portuguese Colonial War dragged on, leading to emigration and new exiles. The period finally came to an end with the fall of one of the most long-lasting dictatorships of the time. War and extreme sociocultural closure account for the unceasing radicalisation of the younger generations, which began in the universities and among the elites and spread to broad swathes of society. In the cultural and educational arenas, practically all of the most significant changes pointed either toward democratisation at a variety of levels or toward revolution, emancipation and utopia. This paper seeks to trace some of the milestones of the shift, particularly proposals in the publishing world and in libraries to foster alternative forms of reading and engaging with new worlds and fellow travellers.
