CIAC organizes the conference “For a Sociology of the Cultural Industry: contributions of the Brazilian production” by Alexandre Bergamo
The University of Algarve welcomes the conference “For a Sociology of the Cultural Industry: contributions of the Brazilian production” by the Brazilian researcher Alexandre Bergamo (UFSC/CNPq).
The objective of this conference, organized by the CIAC in partnership with the CIEO, is to draw a panorama of the cultural production, specifically the Brazilian one, as part of an attempt to systematize the directions and research problems that this area has caused. According to Alexandre Bergamo, “although we can not yet speak in a Sociology of the Cultural Industry as an autonomous area of research, it is undeniable that the various analytical efforts that have been developed, although in a fragmented way, spread in different Universities and Research Centers Brazilians, indicate increasingly precise paths for their approach, rethinking concepts, models, methods and sources for their research.”
