Permanent seminar discusses civic and historical responsibility of census

In times of significant vibration when facing, albeit reluctantly, the issues of racism, social and cultural discrimination, and quotas for social minorities in Portuguese society and beyond, the Census seeks to help question, debate, and open horizons of reflection.

Within the framework of the Permanent Seminars of Communication and Diversity and Postcolonial Studies of the Center for Studies in Communication and Society and the Cultures Past & Present project, civil society is invited to participate in the debate on “The Civic and Historical Responsibility of Census”.

The debate will take place on October 19, at 4 pm, at the Lúcio Craveiro da Silva Library and will be attended by Cristina Roldão (Center for Research and Studies in Sociology), Beatriz Gomes Diaz (Associations of Afro-Descendents), Bruno Sena Martins ( Center for Social Studies), Pedro Bacelar (Assembly of the Republic), Miguel de Barros (Center for Social Studies Amílcar Cabral) and Moisés Martins (Center for Studies on Communication and Society).

The moderation will be in charge of Rosa Cabecinhas and Sheila Khan, both from the Center for Communication and Society Studies.
