Braga Book Fair: Virtual Museum of Lusophony will be presented at the Feira do Livro de Braga 2019

On July 4, at 6:30 p.m., the researchers Vítor de Sousa, Isabel Macedo, Pedro Costa and Fernando Lopes will discuss the potential of the Virtual Museum of Lusophony in the (re) construction of collective memory.

The Virtual Museum of Lusophony is a platform for academic cooperation in science, teaching and arts in the Portuguese-speaking countries and their diasporas, which extends to Galicia and Macau. It integrates universities, with research projects and post-graduate teaching in the area of Communication Sciences and Cultural Studies, cultural and artistic associations, in the construction and deepening of a Portuguese-speaking community. It intends to be a mechanism that invites the active participation of citizens, making records available, commenting on ‘works’ preserved in the museum, (re) building a collective memory.

The Feira do Livro de Braga 2019 is held from June 28 to July 14. The event will take place at ‘Avenida Literária’ located at Rua Dr. Justino Cruz, Rua Francisco Sanches and Largo São João do Souto, in the historic center of Braga.
