Amilcar Torrão Filho (Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo, PUC-SP) delivers the lecture "Gender Performativity in Female Travelers' Narratives. 19th-20th Centuries". Since the 19th century, the journey has given some women the opportunity for the action and agency not allowed due to their gender. The journey, then, allows these defectors to access the world of books, science and, sometimes, paid work. The experiences of these female travelers allow to follow the construction of an intellectual locus using the experience of displacement and writing. Activity co-organized by MA CRIC and ADHUC. This lecture is the result of the project "Female Defectors and Modern Pariahs" (FEM2017-83974- / P MINECO / AEI / FEDER, EU). Lecture open to people interested.
