THE MAGARIDA LOSA’S INSTITUTE FOR COMPARATIVE LITERATURE

Acronym: ILCML THE MAGARIDA LOSA’S INSTITUTE FOR COMPARATIVE LITERATURE - Abre numa nova janela
Person in Charge: Ana Paula Coutinho Mendes
Mission:

The main goal of the Margarida Losa’s Institute for Comparative Literature is to produce knowledge in the field of cultural, aesthetic and literary practices, which consubstantiate intercultural dialogues and transnational aesthetic dominances. Focusing on identitary issues, the Institute adopts comparative strategies in the analysis of texts and contexts, and their interactions, thus, gathering different fields of knowledge and of research (such as Poetics and Literary Theory, InterArt Studies, Feminist Studies, Queer Studies, Translation Studies, Drama Studies, or Post-Colonial Studies).


The development and the promotion of the research taken place within the Institute is carried on through the publication of the journal Cadernos de Literatura Comparada and three different book collections in the area of Comparative Literature (“Pulsar”, “Estudos de Literatura Comparada” and  Cassiopeia”); the participation of the members of the Project in conferences, seminars and workshops in Portugal and abroad; the interchange with foreign researchers; and the cooperation with national and international institutions through several protocols with foreign universities.

Description:

Although formally created in 1985, the Institute for Comparative Literature started its activity in 1997, thanks to the effort of Margarida Losa (1945-1999). The sub-project Interidentities represents the current state of development of the different research areas included in the global project Literature and Identities and comprehends three nuclear domains: Liminarities, Subjectivities and Sexualities. By way of privileging methodological options of transversal fields, such domains are studied within the frame of the following specific research areas:

Poetry and the Construction of Subjectivity

Literature and Visual Arts

Poetics, Sex and Gender

Translation and Drama Studies

Literature of travels

Migrations and Double Belongings

Detective Fiction

Utopian Studies

 

The Institute also hosts the project “Literary Utopias and Utopian Thought: Portuguese Culture and the Western Intellectual Tradition III” (PTDC/ELT/67788/2006), coordinated by Fátima Vieira (see www.letras.up.pt/upi/utopiasportuguesas/), and the project “New Portuguese Letters: 40 years later” (PTDC/CLE-LLI/110473/2009), coordinated by Ana Luísa Amaral.

The programs of the MA IN Literary, Cultural and InterArt Studies, as well as of the MA   in Theatre Studies are taught by members of the Institute.
