Ana Campo Grande:
“Northern Portugal Literary Landscapes: Constructing a Database for the LITESCAPE.PT Project”
Summary: The present work was carried out under the scope of the Master’s degree in Intercultural Studies for Business, at the Accounting and Business School (ISCAP) of the Polytechnic of Porto (P. PORTO). The curricular internship, part of the second year of this MA, took place between January and May of 2019, at the Center for Intercultural Studies, integrating the Project LITESCAPE.PT – Atlas of Literary Landscapes of Mainland Portugal, with the objective of creating a database of literary landscapes of the city of Porto based on the literary works of Mário Cláudio. At the same time, the project allowed to develop literary, cultural and gastronomic routes (related to the Mediterranean Diet), that were the result of research and field work. This is an asset for the project, due to its tourist aspect and capacity for dissemination, as well as for the valorization of the Material and Intangible Cultural Heritage of the Invicta City of Porto.

“Refugee Integration Policies, Gender Issues & Trauma – A Case Study in Germany”
Summary: The masterclass will be composed of several steps containing thesis advice and a summary of the reached conclusions of the dissertation.
It will begin by introducing the importance of reflection upon interest areas and methodologies and provide an example of definition of focal areas to be taken into consideration when starting a dissertation.
Followed by practical examples (through illustrations) one will demonstrate the importance of defining a realistic time frame and setting out practical ways to organize information (symbolic layout of a table of contents, gathering of scientific data etc.)
Field work will also be emphasized throughout the presentation as it involves cautious planning and adequate preparation given the cultural and logistic complexities that may arise, a set of advice based on my experience will be given as well as information regarding the data management and filtering.
The last part is devoted to displaying the results and reached conclusions of the research through charts, graphs and key affirmations.
