OP.Edu – the Observatory for Education and Training Policies organises, in collaboration with the School of Education of IPLUSO (ESEL-IPLUSO), an Online Open Class on Electronic Search in Bibliographic Databases.
The session, which will be facilitated by the Director of the Victor de Sá Library, Professor José Carlos de Carvalho, will take place on Tuesday, October 17, from 12:00 to 13:30. Participation is free. You can access the Zoom link here.
OP.Edu researcher Teresa Teixeira Lopo presented the paper The thought of Amílcar Cabral and education: From the theoretical assumptions of the democracy building to its (re)discovery in the contemporary epistemic field(s) co-authored with Arlinda Cabral, researcher from LusoGlobe – Lusófona Centre on Global Challenges, at the XV Luso-Afro-Brazilian Congress of Social Sciences (CONLAB) and IV Congress of the International Association of Social and Human Sciences in Portuguese Language (CONAILPcsh).
The researchers presented and discussed with the public the first results of an ongoing project on Amílcar Cabral’s Thought and Education, which aims, on the one hand, to analyse the reception of Amílcar Cabral’s work in Portugal and in European countries of the Guinean and Cape Verdean diaspora, taking the year 1970 as the starting point, the date of the publication by François Maspero of O Poder das Armas; and, on the other hand, to identify which educational challenges were addressed by the research carried out in Portugal between 1974 and 2024.This analysis, which involves consulting national and European databases, archives and institutional repositories, aims to compile a broad corpus of documents that includes press articles, reviews and articles published in scientific journals and master’s dissertations and doctoral theses.
The Congresses, which took place between 26 and 28 September 2023 in the city of Praia, Santiago Island, Cape Verde, under the theme Reinventing Democracy in a World of Insecurity: Challenges for the Social Sciences and Humanities aimed, among other goals, to foster the debate on topics of academic and social relevance, and to strengthen the International Association of Social and Human Sciences in Portuguese Language (AILPcsh) as a locus of academic and social convergence in Portuguese-speaking countries and regions.
