Margarita Ledo is participating in the International Conference ‘Interfaces da Lusofonía’ on the 4th of July


The director of Audiovisual Studies Group, Margarita Ledo Andión, Chair of Communication Studies at the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC), will speak, next 4th July, at the opening plenary session of the International Congress “Interfaces da Lusofonía”, which will be held at the Universidade do Minho, Braga (Portugal). This Conference wants to think Lusophony as an intersection of looks, performances and knowledge. Besides, this meeting is based on the idea of science’s porous borders and the conviction that the crossing of glances favors a more profitable knowledge of what is, and what it can be, Lusophony.

There will also be discussions with writers like Olinda Beja (Sao Tome), Filimone Meigos (Mozambique), Lopito Feijó, José Luís Mendonça, Amelia Luandino Lomba and Joseph Vieira (Angola). “Interfaces da Lusofonía” will take place between June 4th and 6th.
