Why photo elicitation can tell us more about DeafSpace

Umberto Eco [i] claims that sensory phenomena are transcribed, in the photographic emulsion, in such a way that even if there is a causal link with the real phenomena, the graphic images can be considered as wholly arbitrary with respect to these phenomena. The author refers to the highly subjective personal decisions that take part in the act of photographic capture of an image, as well as to all the possible...

The new migratory flux from East Timor to Portugal: a police news?

Last September, I started to notice the first news about the rapid increase in the number of arrivals from East Timor, followed by the identification of some immigrants living and working in poor conditions in agricultural zones of Alentejo (south of Portugal)[1]. I’m not sure if the arrival of three thousand East Timorese people between June and September represents a new migratory wave, although the TSF radio station has promptly...

For a Sociology of Science

In this seventh blog post, I will analyze the role of science in the light of the pertinent considerations made by Pierre Bourdieu (2000, 2001) in this regard more than 20 years ago. In fact, this author thought about education, intellectuals and academia at least since 1982 (40 years ago) and the publication of his Homo Academicus, in 1984. I will also reflect on some more recent notes made by...

The role of European universities for the sustainable transformation of society

It is also essential to map the initiatives that provide a response to the different sustainable development goals and the building of bridges between educational institutions as indicated by the work of Valdés and Comendador (2022), which recommends future research on the best practices of these alliances and deepening the understanding of the differential and common factors in best practices.    In recent years, work highlighting the role of education...

Although there are still denialists around the world among politicians, common people and even ‘scientists’ who minimize the effects of climate change, nobody less than the United Nations (UN) states it as the defining issue of our era[1]. With a clear impact on the habitability conditions of our planet, dealing with climate change is not just a matter of cutting carbon emissions and other technical actions, but foremost a human...

Art takes on the character of expression of the Self, accessible not only to academics or specialists, instead it is a form of expression of freedom, of development of the values of Dignity and a way of promoting social progress. Carlos Barros Art is the most immersive experience between the ‘self’, the ‘other’ and the context. Art allows us to express feelings, concerns, experiences, perspectives and dreams. Above all, it...

Ambrosini (2022): Moral Economy, Deservingness, Competing Moral Economies and Immigration Policies.

In this sixth blog post, I will examine the connection between the concepts of moral economy, deservingness, competing moral economies and concrete immigration policies based on the analyses provided by Maurizio Ambrosini (2021, 2022). I will proceed by bridging them with the general use of time as a tool in migration governance (temporalities, uncertainties, othering processes, protection and oppression logics).  © Alexandra Pereira, CECC, UCP, 2022 * Cover Image Creative...
