Figurações náuticas da migrância / Nautical Figurations of Migrancy

LEONARDO TONUS, Université Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV)

A presente palestra interroga a presença e a função de objetos navais (embarcações e seus derivados) na produção literária e artística brasileiras contemporâneas. Trata-se, por um lado, de observar a emergência dos objetos navais na retórica transcultural enquanto objeto/espaço da transição; por outro lado, busca-se indagar as figurações náuticas no âmbito da contemporaneidade, nomeadamente no que tange à percepção e ao reconhecimento da alteridade fragilizada de migrantes e refugiados.

This lecture examines the presence and function of naval objects (ships and their derivatives) in contemporary Brazilian literary and artistic production. On the one hand, it is about observing the emergence of naval objects in transcultural rhetoric as objects/spaces of transition; on the other hand, it seeks to study nautical figurations in the context of contemporary times, namely with regard to the perception and recognition of the fragile alterity of migrants and refugees.

EVENT IN PORTUGUESE WITH CONSECUTIVE ENGLISH TRANSLATION.

Free and open to the public.

Light lunch will be served.
