Magazine Brasília: "seeing the other in one's own eyes" (1942-1968)

The aim of the research proposal is to examine the Magazine Brasília (1942-1968), produced by the Institute of Brazilian Studies of the University of Coimbra. I am interested in analyzing the articles related to history, literature and language, relating them to the cultural political context of the time, perceiving senses, controls, disjunctions and ambiguities in relation to the Brazilian and Portuguese political and historical culture being always attentive to the specificities of contexts in time and space. Concomitantly, it is necessary to understand their conditions of emergence, trajectory, material conditions, intended audience, profile of the intellectuals involved and the dialogue with the cultural history and politics of the countries involved.
