On the 16th February 2022, from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm, CIAC promotes the webinar “Literary heritage, gastronomic heritage and tourism”, with the speakers Ana Lavrador (CICS. NOVA/IELT-FCSH-UNL), Cândida Cadavez (HTC-NOVA/FCSH-CFE/ESHTE), Maria José Pires (ESHTE/CEAUL), Goreti Botelho (ESAC/CERNAS/IPC) and Isabel Dâmaso Santos (CLEPUL-FLUL/CIAC-UAlg).

In this fifth edition of CIAC Webinars, we intend to address the intersection between Literature, Tourism and Gastronomy, in its various forms of expression and covering various fields of knowledge. It is considered relevant to observe the concept of “heritage” associated with these fields of study and, therefore, we invite you to reflect on this theme, from which literary journeys of refined flavours are expected.

In February, the Center’s monthly webinar program takes the form of an online “symposium” with different guests.
