INCULTUM Pilot at CITCEM conference “Cultures of Water”


The Transdisciplinary Research Centre “Culture, Space and Memory” of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of Porto (CITCEM) invited the academic community to its 10th Conference, centred on the theme of “Cultures of Water: Heritage, Environment and Society”, and organized at the the Casa dos Livros (Palacete Burmester), Porto, Portugal, from 16 to 19 November 2022.

The Conference aims to reflect on Cultures of Water, a theme that has been a focal point of the research developed at CITCEM since its foundation, placing the debate under a plural analysis that reflects the research directions and forms of intervention developed by academics and research centres from all over the world. The aim is to observe Cultures of Water in their diversity, from a multi-scalar perspective, considering chronological and spatial variations, preferably from an inter- and transdisciplinary perspective.

At the 10th edition of this important sectorial event, Prof. Desidério Batista of University of Algarve is presenting the INCULTUM Pilot focused on Campina del Faro and its water heritage in the Panel 6.2 “Water, Production and Environment”.

Title of presentation: A paisagem e o património da água da Campina de Faro (Litoral do Centro Algarvio) – do passado para o futuro: Entre a produção hortofrutícola e o turismo cultural
