Language is a Virus: Premonições Ficcionais de Pandemias

O Departamento de Linguística e Literaturas da Universidade de Évora e o Centro de Estudos Anglísticos da Universidade de Lisboa organizarão, nos próximos dias 10, 17, 24 e 31 de Julho, pelas 18h, diversas sessões online acerca de obras de Edgar Allan Poe, Jack London e Stephen King. Estas sessões, coordenadas por Maria Antónia Lima, têm o intuito de identificar analogias entre os títulos ficcionais seleccionados e a presente situação de pandemia.

Durante 4 sessões online, reflectiremos sobre algumas obras ficcionais distópicas e premonitórias de pandemias, nas quais poderemos identificar e reconhecer medos e ansiedades existenciais muito semelhantes aos actuais, e onde encontraremos pistas que nos ajudarão a entender o que verdadeiramente se passa connosco na actualidade.

Dia 10 de Julho
