Title Ph.D. Thesis: Modernismo e nacionalismo no século XX: paralelos entre discursos musicais em Portugal e no Brasil
Scholarship Reference: UI/BD/151161/2021

Despite the different parts taken by both countries, Brazil and Portugal are united by a past that is culturally and socially noticeable in the present days. Music, as the dialogs about the subject, has a symbiotic relationship with society and so it reflects the connection between the countries. With this investigation we intend to understand how the musical discourses from Brazil and Portugal dialogue with each other in the twentieth century with emphasis in those concerning modernism and nationalism.
The work of composers, musicologists, and other musicians is compromised by a political, cultural, and musical background that articulates concepts that are not necessarily associated – for example: nationalism and modernism.
In which way the notions of modernism, nationalism and music are present in the Brazilian and Portuguese discourses in the twentieth century? How are those concepts articulated with the musical and essayistic production and with the political and cultural context of both countries? It is in these questions and in those that arise from them that we are going to reflect during the investigation.
