public.person.short_bio

After doing field research about the "xávega" – a traditional Portuguese fishing artwork using beach seine nets -- between 1991 and 1995 (Vieira de Leiria, Leirosa, Espinho, Esmoriz), I have dedicated myself totally to the teaching profession. In this scope of responsibility, I introduced the anthropological thinking of Tim Ingold in the courses that I teach and have also created the first elective class on Maritime Anthropology in Portuguese Higher Education. On the ethical and citizenship level in which my pedagogical activity is positioned, I have worked out arguments by authors like John McMurtry, Martha Nussbaum, Anselm Jappe, Serge Latouche, Roland Gori or Dany-Robert Dufour, and I am in line with the terms in which Thomas Hyland Eriksen formulated the requirements of an 'implicated' Anthropology in view of the convergence of the 'three major crises of globalization': the economic and financial crisis, the climate and environmental crisis, the crisis of cultures and identities.
