MARÍA BOTANA VILAR IS THE CO-EDITOR OF THE LATEST BOOK IN THE HESPÉRIDES COLLECTION
The book Galicia e(m) nós. Estudos para a compreensão do relacionamento cultural galego português, published in December 2021, has the collaboration of CIAC researcher María Botana Vilar as editor. Integrated in the Hespérides Collection, this publication is a collection of works that aims to give space and visibility to authors and texts of the Portuguese Academy on different aspects of Galicia. It is the first joint initiative of the Centre for Galician Studies at the University of Minho, the University of the Algarve and the New University of Lisbon.
Compiling twelve studies from different academic areas, Galicia e(m) nós. Estudos para a compreensão do relacionamento cultural galego-português addresses the Galician-Portuguese subject matter, with the aim of contributing to the reflection of the polyhedral reality that Galicia and Portugal represent. The book is organized by thematic frameworks, which analyse, for example, the political and ecclesiastical relations in the peninsular northwest; the presence of Galician immigrants in northern Portugal in the Modern Age; the perceptions of the Portuguese world in Galicia; the legends of the Moors in the oral tradition of Portugal and Galicia; and the anthropological perspectives between past, present and future.
The Hespérides Collection is intended to publish monographs and other scientific works from the Centre for Humanistic Studies of the University of Minho, a research unit that seeks to develop and disseminate research in the Humanities, particularly in the areas of linguistic, literary, cultural and artistic studies.
