International symposium ‘Going to School with Adília’

The international symposium ‘Going to School with Adília’ will take place on March 21st and 22nd at the National Library of Portugal and at Agrupamento de Escolas Gil Vicente.

This symposium aims to promote reflection about the affinities between literature and school stemming from the work of Adília Lopes. We consider that several texts by this poetess comprise a higher example of the inseparable relationship between literary texts and education, showing a particular sensitivity to the pedagogical function of school, but also to the possibility of continuous education through literature.

As part of this meeting, the 1st edition of the Adília Lopes Literary Prize is taking place, which aims to stimulate interest in literature. More information here.
