2020/01/01 - 2020/09/01 Crisis Mapping: Representing Global Capitalism in Terratreme's Transnational Crisis Cinema. The MA dissertation explores the extent to which a number of transnational films produced by the Portuguese film collective Terratreme, released following the 2008 financial crash and the subsequent years of crisis and austerity in Portugal, can be understood to move towards Fredric Jameson's proposed aesthetic of cognitive mapping.

2017/06/01 - 2017/06/03 Symposium Culture and Crisis in Portugal. I have co-convened the symposium Culture and Crisis in Portugal, with fellow colleague Dr Luis Trindade in June 2017. The event brought together artists, activists, films, videos and other cultural forms that somehow tried to respond to austerity in Portugal and other southern European countries in the last decade. Through a series of debates and screenings, we analysed both the ways in which cultural forms were able to come up with reliable accounts of contemporary events. (2017/06/01 - 2017/06/03)

Course / Discipline taught

Academic session Degree Subject (Type) Institution / Organization
2019/10 - 2020/07 Co-taught: Core Module - Comparative Literature. The course allows students to develop understanding of key critical concepts associated with the comparative study of literature and cultures and to consider historical developments affecting the way we think about literature in comparative terms. In my sessions, I introduced students to the work of Silvia Federeci; Audre Lorde; Judith Butler; among others. MA/MRes Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies (Master) Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2017/10 - 2020/07 Co-taught: Post-War Themes in Comparative History since 1945. In the sessions taught I introduced students to the social movements and political discourses that emerged in the period of the long 1960s, predominantly in Southern Europe, giving particular attention to the workers movements against the backdrop of the social and cultural changes of the period through a selection of films that embody the workers’ political discourse. Ba in Modern Languages (Bachelor (1st cycle)) Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2019/10 - 2020/06 Co-taught: Scenes of Portuguese History: Cultural Approaches to Modern Politics. The course narrates the dramatic history of Portuguese modern politics through different objects, from political discourse and literature to music and film. Its aim is twofold: to familiarize students with two key historical processes in twentieth-century Portuguese society (salazarism and postcolonial period) and to analyse these as scenes and performances with specific actors and plots. BA in Modern Languages; BA in Iberian and Latin American Studies (Bachelor (1st cycle)) Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2016/01 - 2020/06 Co-taught: Luso-Brazilian Cultures. This course provides students with a broad introduction to the modern cultural histories of the Lusophone world, including Portugal, Brazil, and Lusophone Africa. The main aims of the course are to provide students with a basic historical and critical framework that will allow them to situate specific themes and problems of the Luso-Brazilian and African Diaspora Cultures in the course of their studies. BA in Modern Languages; BA in Iberian and Latin American Studies Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2019/10/21 - 2019/10/21 Visiting Professor: Accattone (Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1961). After viewing the film, the discussion is framed by Pasolini’s own writings about the film, and about how, according to the director, young sub-proletarian’s bodies and desires were captured by consumer capitalism, resulting in the adoption of bourgeois gestures and styles and the eradication of the sub-proletarian culture in the 1970s in Italy. Fashion Studies Master's Degree (Master) Università degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza Dipartimento di Storia Culture Religioni, Italy
2018/10 - 2019/06 Co-taught: Culture and Critique in the Latin American and Iberian Worlds. The course provides students with critical appreciation of key issues central to the cultural histories of Spain, Portugal and Latin America as well as critical insight into some of the key ways – including visual – in which societies and cultures of Iberia and Latin America have been conceptualized, classified and narrated. During my sessions, students were introduced to Latin American Modern Cinema as well as to notions of Third and Imperfect Cinema. MA/MRes Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies (Master) Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2017/10 - 2018/07 Course Convenor and Professor: Rethinking Portuguese History through Film. This course narrates the dramatic history of Portuguese modern politics through film. Its aim is twofold: to familiarize students with key historical processes in twentieth-century Portuguese society and to analyse how the cinematic medium has been revisiting and/or problematizing Portuguese colonial history and its postcolonial present. BA in Modern Languages; BA in Iberian and Latin American Studies; BA in Film Studies (Bachelor (1st cycle)) Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2017/10 - 2018/07 Course Convenor and Professor: Gender and Feminism in Brazilian and Portuguese Visual Culture. The course introduces key concepts of feminist theory through the analysis of female visual representations in Brazilian and Portuguese contemporary culture. The module’s scope is interdisciplinary, offering a feminist approach, intersecting gender, class, race and ethnicity. BA in Modern Languages; BA in Iberian and Latin American Studies Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2016/10 - 2017/07 Co-taught: Creative Destruction: Cultural responses to contemporary Portugal. By questioning given assumptions about the world, periods of crisis are particularly rich and challenging to culture. This course was focused on the economic crisis experienced in Portugal in the last decade (as well as its social and political manifestations) and analysed how artists and intellectuals from different areas (video, cinema, music, literature, etc) creatively responded to what they perceived as a moment of destruction. BA in Modern Languages; BA in Iberian and Latin American Studies (Bachelor (1st cycle)) Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2016/01 - 2017/06 Co-taught: Theory 1 - Cultural History/Visual Cultural. The course provides students with critical appreciation of key issues central to the cultural histories of Spain, Portugal and Latin America as well as critical insight into some of the key ways – including visual – in which societies and cultures of Iberia and Latin America have been conceptualized, classified and narrated. During my sessions, students were introduced to Latin American Modern Cinema as well as to notions of Third and Imperfect Cinema. MA in Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American Studies (Master) Birkbeck University of London Department of Cultures and Languages, United Kingdom
2013/09 - 2016/05 Course Convenor and Lecturer: From Dictatorship to Revolution in Portugal’s Cinema. This module uses the dictatorship and the post-revolutionary period as historical frames to identify aesthetic shifts within Portuguese cinema. It departs from the films produced during the dictatorial regime - Comédias à Portuguesa, introduces Cinema Novo as an aesthetic new paradigm non-aligned with the totalitarian regime and the films produced after 1974 as ways of addressing the collective trauma of the colonial wars. BA in Spanish and Portuguese Queen Mary University of London - Mile End Campus, United Kingdom
2013/09 - 2016/05 Course Convenor and Lecturer: From Page to Screen. This module analyses text-to-screen adaptations, offering a panorama of film and Portuguese literature. Students examine authorship and narrative in Camoes’s epic ‘The Lusiads’; in the work of modernist Fernando Pessoa; and in the cinema of Manoel de Oliveira, also considering the implications of spatial and temporal relocations in these films.
