During the academic year 2016/17, I'm on a sabbatical leave
MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE & ACTIVITIES
My teaching experience should be divided in three quite unlike stages. The first stage goes from 1997 to 2006, when I was working in the Institute of Romance Philology, Jagiellonian University, i.e. in a traditional, philological context. I was teaching Portuguese language and literature (19th and 20th c.), together with more general elements of Portuguese culture. Another stage goes from 2006 to approximately 2010-2012, when the main load of teaching activities was located in the curriculum of Mediterranean Studies, realized in the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies that later on became the Faculty "Artes Liberales", University of Warsaw. Finally, since 2010, I've been systematically involved in a growing number of PhD programs. Participation in postgraduate seminars and the tasks related to academic advising and supervision of PhD dissertations progressively filled the space previously occupied by my undergraduate classes. Since 2013, I've also engaged into an original program of experimental seminars, developing my own approach to academic production and transmission of knowledge.
Each of these programs has been an occasion not only for simple supervision of the doctoral projects, but also for some original forms of reflection, often beyond the usual conventions of academic paper. These unpublished materials are uploaded on the sub-pages dedicated to the respective events.

The concept of "experimental seminar" reflects a vision of production, as well as transmission of knowledge inside the academic institution. This peculiar modality of reflection has an abundant illustration in the history of the humanities, just to quote such examples as Lacan's and Derrida's seminars or the readings in Paul's letters provided by Giorgio Agamben.
Propitious conditions for such an experimentation exist also in Warsaw, namely at the College of Liberal Arts that, probably quite unlike its equivalents worldwide, attracts a group of students interested in searching for their creative ways in the humanities.
