Internacional Seminar
Postcolonial Airliners as Cultural Mediators | Corporate Branding and Cultural Governance in Transnational Contexts
21 to 22 June 2023 | 10:00 | NOVA FCSH | Av. de Berna | Room 301

Taking the airplane as a chronotope –a moving element which represents a political and cultural unity, and connects fixed but geographically disperse spaces in fluid, imaginary ways–, this advanced international seminar brings together scholars from different geographic locations and fields of study to discuss the intersections between corporate branding and cultural governance in flag carriers with a colonial past.

This 2-day program focuses on cultural mediation from an anthropological and postcolonial perspective, by investigating into the ways in which former colonial flag carriers have represented/embodied transnational cultures, national identities, memories and heritage, as well as their interstitial spaces in which these issues are negotiated and/or contested.

This international seminar is part of the SR&TD FCT Project “Sounds of Tourism” (PTDC/ART-PER/32417/2017)
