The postdoctoral research project entitled "From Negritude to the Whole-World: Dialogues between Brazilian Literature and the Visual Arts in the Context of Globalization" aims, firstly, to consider the issues arising from the movement of Negritude in the 1930s, and secondly, to study Edouard Glissant's Whole-World (tout-Monde) thought. In addition, we will reflect on the dialogues and intersections between Brazilian literature and the contemporary visual arts. In this way, the guiding thread of the project will be the poetics of two contemporary Brazilian authors, Edmilson de Almeida Pereira and Adão Ventura, in dialogue with the visual arts, specifically the brazilian artists Paulo Nazareth and Jaime Lauriano. Thus, we will follow a theoretical proposal of research that will pass through the main reflexive lines that seek to think the issues that revolve around the movement of The Negritude movement and of the Whole-world in the context of globalization, as thought by Glissant. We will start from one of the lines of research proposed by Maurício Salles de Vasconcelos, in the book Espiral Terra: poéticas contemporâneas de língua portuguesa which concerns postcolonial poetry in the current context of globalization. Finally, we aim to contribute to the Comparative Studies of Portuguese Language Literatures by proposing a transdisciplinary and inter-art speculative approach that will go through the domains of aesthetics, philosophy, history, geography and culture, with the literary experience as the driving force.
