OP.Edu debates Amílcar Cabral’s thought about education at XV CONLAB and IV CONAILPcsh | 27 September 2023

 

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.
