Bruno Ministro is a junior researcher at the Institute for Comparative Literature at the University of Porto, Portugal. He has received a Ph.D. in Materialities of Literature (2020) from the University of Coimbra. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Modern Languages from the same institution (2011) and a Master’s in Text Editing and Publishing Studies (2015) from the NOVA University of Lisbon.
He is the Principal Investigator for the exploratory research project To See the Tree and the Forest. Reading the Poetry of António Ramos Rosa from a Distance. This digital environmental humanities project benefits from a competitive grant awarded by the Portuguese Research Council (ref. 2022.08122.PTDC, 2023-2024). He is a co-editor of the Digital Archive of PO.EX, hosted by University Fernando Pessoa, and he is part of the team of MATLIT LAB: Humanities Laboratory at the University of Coimbra. He currently integrates the research team of the project “POEPOLIT – Contemporary Poetry and Politics: Social Conflicts and Poetic Dialogisms” (U. Vigo, Galicia – Spain).
His research sits at the intersections of literary studies, media studies and cultural studies, with an emphasis on intermediality and comparative media. His work focuses mainly on experimental poetry, copy art and electronic literature. His primary goal has always been to develop a comprehensive and interdisciplinary understanding of how literary art forms engage with material and technological aspects of media. He is particularly interested in examining what this reveals about the social dimensions of writing and reading across different media and at different times.
A second line of his research concerns the role of digital methodologies in the production and dissemination of knowledge. He has participated in several research projects in the digital humanities and has a long-standing interest in computational methods and theories for literary research. He is also broadly interested in the postdigital, the posthuman, the posthumanities, and other posteriorities at both ends of non-linear spacetime geometries.
