Lígia Bernardino - ILCMLLígia Bernardino studied literature at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Porto, where she concluded her PhD in 2014 with a thesis entitled Liminalities of the Human. A Study on Jorge de Sena, Maria Gabriela Llansol e Gonçalo M. Tavares. Since then, and apart from her activity as a teacher and translator, she has published a number of articles and essays in several national and international journals of literature. The questioning of the human factor in the present world is at the core of her investigation. Such an approach has also enabled her to take part in the publishing and writing of entries included in the digital platform Europe Facing Europe, a project within the Institute for Comparative Literature Margarida Losa. Therefore, as a literary researcher, her object of study is foremost the representation of the links between humans and nature, as well as technique. The essays published display her investigation work which, focusing on literature, adopts a philosophical and cultural insight about the human as perceived in the twenty-first century, thus questioning the ethical challenges today’s world is facing.
