    Between immanence and transcendence, the literary text knew, throughout its diachronic path, to incorporate readings of the empirical and the dream, the real and the imaginary, creating unusual, singular or enchanting worlds and times. The exercise of difference, in the Fantastic and the Marvelous, carried out between horizons of imagination, the absurd or the (un)likely, has seen inter-art dialogues that have included literature, cinema, painting or music, allowing exchanges, influences and contaminations in the universe of Lusofonia. With Comparative Literature as a reference, the International Congress of Contemporary Lusophone Culture invites teachers and researchers to its fifth edition, to be held at the Escola Superior de Educação do Instituto Politécnico de Portalegre, in a hybrid format, on the 26th and 27th of September 2024.
