Event Details

Under the designation “The Ambiguous World of Literature”, we try to establish the relationship, not always easy or obvious, between literature and reality, focusing on examples from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century. The importance of the mask becomes evident and we split the presentation in four fundamental vectors to understand the perverse, ambiguous and misleading relations between the real and its representation in literary texts: the transparent mask; the other as a mask; the identity under the mask; the treacherous mask.

Fátima Marinho is a professor of literature at the University of Porto in Portugal.

The event will be in English. Admission is free and all are welcome.
