MOIRA: literatura digital na (re)criação de património

Translated title of the contribution: MOIRA: (Re)creating heritage through digital literature

Diogo Marques, Ana Gago

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



MOIRA is an artistic and cyberliterary reSEARCH project that seeks to reinterpret and recreate local versions of the Algarve legends of Enchanted Mouras. The project aims to use artistic creation as a platform for questioning and mobilizing groups and communities around intangible cultural heritage, viewing artistic creation as a dynamic agent for new interpretations and uses of that heritage, outside museums. Combining computational creativity with the revitalization of intangible cultural heritage, the MOIRA project aims to reflect on social issues such as gender and women's rights. Using digital literature and the concept of digital heritage, the project seeks to preserve, disseminate, and generate multiple forms of knowledge on a glocal scale.
