Casa Dos Estudantes Do Império: stories, memories, legacy.

The objective of this symposium is to contribute toward the reading of stories, of the Casa dos Estudantes do Império (1944-1965), conscious of the world,
of circulations and disagreements, able to undo prejudices (especially a Eurocentric vision of the CEI), the illusion of unanimity (absence of contradictions and internal conflicts) and the myth of exceptionalism of the House in the international context.

It is a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary sym­po­sium that brings together experts from the Social Sci­en­ces and Huma­ni­ties, from aca­de­mic ins­ti­tu­ti­ons from vari­ous coun­tries, inte­res­ted in deba­ting, in a cri­ti­cal and plu­ra­lis­tic man­ner, the sto­ries, the memo­ries, the inte­rac­ti­ons and the legacy of the Casa dos Estu­dan­tes do Impé­rio. The chal­lenge that is pro­po­sed is to con­tex­tu­a­lize the Casa on seve­ral sca­les of analy­sis and unders­tand it as dyna­mic and hete­ro­ge­ne­ous rea­lity in an inter­na­ti­o­nal com­pa­ra­tive framework.
