Research on Natália Correia editorials presented at AsHIsCom

On 15 September, CICANT's researcher Carla Rodrigues Cardoso participated on the international congress AsHIsCom, co-presenting with Pedro Marques Gomes the study entitled "Natália Correia à frente da Vida Mundial (1976-1977): a história da primeira diretora de uma newsmagazine em Portugal" ["Natália Correia at the head of Vida Mundial (1976-1977): the story of Portugal's first female newsmagazine director"].

Natália Correia was a Portuguese intellectual who made a name for herself in poetry, politics, and was well known for her public intervention in social issues. Between May 1976 and January 1977, she was the director of Portugal's first newsmagazine, Vida Mundial, an unprecedented feat for 40 years. Her editorials mirror her time, a troubled era of consolidation of institutions and the democratic system in Portugal. Natália Correia expressed her support for the presidential candidacy of General Ramalho Eanes and fought against political interference in the media, advocating freedom of the press in both the public and private sectors.
