June and July 2020. [In Portuguese].
During the Covid-2019 pandemic, I'm proud to have initiated and overseen two online courses on socially significant topics tailored for audiences without training in philosophy. These courses were offered for free and attracted participants from diverse disciplines, such as economics, law, medicine, social policy, and social service. We had attendees from various parts of Brazil and other countries, including Angola, Colombia, Mozambique, and Peru. Throughout it, I received invaluable assistance from my friends Mateus Leite, Matheus Dabnei, as well as Professors Rogério and Abílio.
Teorias Contemporâneas da Justiça ["Contemporary Theories of Justice"], offered by Rogério Lopes, associate professor of philosophy at UFMG. [In Portuguese]
Verdade e Desinformação ["Truth and Disinformation: cognitive bias, epistemic bubbles, scientific negationism, polarization... and more"], co-coordinated by Abílio Rodrigues Filho, associate professor of philosophy at UFMG. The course featured lectures from Ernesto Perine (UFMG), Walter Carnielli (Unicamp) and Marcico Moretto (USP).
I'm a member of Comissão da Memória do Departamento de Filosofia da FAFICH. This committee is dedicated to preserving and sharing both the institutional history and lived memory of the Philosophy Departament of the Faculty of Philosophy and Human Sciences (FAFICH) of UFMG. Under the heading of Professor Ivan Domingues, we strive to record and share the Department's legacy.
