AmarElo: artivism and the epistemologies of the south. A conversation between Emicida, Boaventura de Sousa Santos and Sara Araújo

October 19, 2021, 19h00-21h00

Online event

Since 2011, CES, under the Project Alice  - Strange Mirrors, Unsuspected Lessons, now renewed as the alice-Epistemologies of the South Research Programme, has been promoting activities and events born from the desire to combine art and science, to transgress the boundaries between academic knowledge and knowledges born in social struggles and to recognise the role of emotions in the creation of transformative knowledge.

Há palavras que nasceram para a porrada”[Some words were born to clash], “Alice na cidade: Ciências Sociais, Rap e Mais” [Alice in the city: Social Sciences, Rap and More], “Rapensando as Ciências Sociais e a Política” [Rapthinking Social Sciences and Politics], held in Coimbra, were meetings built on the ecology knowledges that brought together rap, funk, kuduro, Romani music, folk tales, poetry and academic knowledge.

In this fourth event, academia is challenged by the reading of the story told in the documentary “AmarElo. It's all for Yesterday”, in which Emicida, celebrating the rich legacy of Afro-Brazilian culture, «shows the cry of the depressed periphery». Following the screening, a talk between Emicida, Boaventura de Sousa Santos and Sara Araújo, to which all those present are invited. The moderator will be Tatiana Moura (CES/Promundo)
