Abstract: We propose the study of contemporary Portuguese literature through the reviews published in the Portuguese periodical Colóquio Letras (1971/n. 01-1979/n. 52). The Literature Brazilian university student hardly has the opportunity of studying the contemporary Portuguese literature from the 1970's to the present time during the graduation course. By the "Critical Review" section of a literary periodical of great prestige and credibility _ Colóquio Letras _ it is possible for the students of Portuguese Literature to keep up with the new authors and Portuguese literary texts. The research will result in a paper on which will be found the following items: a) comments on the Portuguese literature of the second part of the 20th century that will be written in a historical perspective; b) social- historical contextualization about Colóquio Letras periodical; c) comments on review academic gender; d) supplements: catalographic cards with information about: literary compositions review; authors' names; literary compositions; places and others mentioned in the review text; life and literary production of reviewed author; brief comments on the principal points of the review; key words; information about the reviewer; sections of the periodical; complete texts of the reviews; periodical summaries ; many sorts of tables. With the conclusion/results of the research, we intend to contribute to: contemporary Portuguese literature studies ( 2nd part of the 20th century ); Portuguese periodical History; enhancement of student's critical sensibility; considerations about the academic review gender; writing and reading skills improvement; eventual pedagogical textbook for Portuguese Literature students and teachers; possible continuation of post-graduation studies.
