Annonce

Argument

Throughout his life, from his ethical and civic awareness, José Capela was commited to Mozambique in many ways. In the historical field, soon it was recognized that his historiography represented a renovation of the perspectives about Mozambique's different actors and transformation processes – not only due to his sofisticated view, but also due to the focus of his writings. In a sense, Africans, and particularly Mozambicans, gained a voice through his works, a consequence of what happened after the publication of the letters sent to the Voz Africana newsroom.

It should be noted that his academic work was preceded by a highly personal engagement with the Mozambicans. Taking into account the role of the Beira’s Church in the press and, specifically, the role of José Soares Martins in the management of the Diário de Moçambique and Voz Africana newspapers, but also the media's role in the democratization process of Mozambican society, this event will also host papers focusing on the Mozambican press (both with an historical and a contemporary perspective) – for example, focusing on the press’ social and political role in the democratization and the construction of a political dialogue.

In summary, and in the wake of his commited knowledge, the organizers aim to pay a tribute to José Capela and thus have a new approach to Mozambique with a multidisciplinary perspective, like the one he promoted. We welcome proposals about the topics that Capela also focused, especially:

  • History and social dynamics of Mozambique;
  • Mozambique’s historiography and the challenges the social knowledge faces today;
  • History and the media's socio-political role in Mozambique.
