Biographical Note

Pedro Antunes is a Ph.D. in Anthropology (FCSH-NOVA), with a thesis on the revitalization of the ritual of Encomendação das Almas (2021). He is a visiting assistant professor at the Department of Anthropology at Universidade Nova de Lisboa and a researcher at CRIA-NOVA. His investigation explores processes of cultural transmission and social regeneration mediated by ritual performance and cultural heritage, both recaptured as systems of ontological regrouping. Through the production of immersive and embodied ethnographies about vital relations between the living and the dead, he deepened the knowledge of transformative imagination processes and forms of social and cosmic economy in the cultural area of Beira Baixa. Currently, he is developing a research project on cooperative mills that focuses on the study of perceptions, attitudes and environmental values of seasonal migrants in rural contexts facing the problems related to the Anthropocene.
