Abstract

On the centennial year of Pedro da Silveira (born in September, 5, 1922), the University of the Azores joins the celebration activities organised by several institutions in Portugal and abroad with the commemoration conference entitled Pedro da Silveira – the faces of a cultural polyhedron, which aims at reflecting on the many facets of this writer. Born on Flores Island, in the Azores, Pedro da Silveira spent a great part of his life in mainland Portugal, but never broke the attachment to his home archipelago. His work encompasses a variety of interests, including literary writing and literary criticism, historical research, philological edition, translation and anthology. It is the purpose of the conference to highlight all these fields and to encourage further inquiry on his work, still insufficiently explored.
