Novas Cartas Portuguesas - publication and process

Adriana Bebiano (CES/FLUC)

October 23, 2023, 16h00 (GMT+1)

Online event


This seminar is part of the series The Weft of Memory: dates to count, organised by the coordination of the thematic line Europe and the Global South: heritages and dialogues. The series aims to mark and reflect on less resounding dates, but equally determinant for the construction of the 25th of April 1974 and the independence of Portuguese-speaking African countries and East Timor. The seminars take place online, whenever possible on the date to be marked, every month, at 16h00, throughout 2023.

Adriana Bebiano discusses the publication of the New Portuguese Letters, its impact and the judicial process that involved the authors, which began on 25 October 1973.
