In the framework of our cultural cooperation, Portuguese Professor Fátima Marinho, Vice-President of Porto University will give a lecture on Portuguese literature at Cairo University: "The Ambiguous world of Literature: in search of Lost Identity".

The focus of this lecture will be on the several kinds of the representation of reality in literary texts. There will be a comparative study between 19th century novels and those of the last 30 years. Portuguese contemporary novels have a very curious way of dealing with the real and with the past. The past is definitely transformed and looked in a critical and creative way.

The venue will take place Thursday 6th of April, in the Conference Room, Faculty of Letters, English Department in Cairo University, from 1 to 2 p.m.

Please confirm attendance to cairo@mne.pt, as the room has limited space.
