Abstract [en]

This article considers the role of Portuguese feminist writersand intellectuals of the early twentieth century as important transnational cultural mediators, who functioned both as promoters of Portuguese cultureand literature across national borders and as importers of ideas that were incirculation at that time. The article traces how the correspondence betweenthe prominent intellectual Ana de Castro Osório (1872–1935) and the translator Göran Björkman (1860–1923), together with Virgínia de Castro e Almeida’s (1874–1946) reception and dissemination of the feminist thinker Ellen Key (1849–1926), illustrate the cross-cultural exchange between Portugal andSweden, thus highlighting how these Portuguese intellectuals functioned astransnational beacons for the circulation of ideas. The article’s overarching aim is to highlight the role played by these Portuguese women writers as mediators in the transnational processes of cultural exchange, which underpinned andshaped the modernization of Portuguese early twentieth-century culture.

Abstract [pt]

Este artigo considera o importante papel das escritoras e intelectuais feministas portuguesas do início do século XX enquanto mediadores culturais e transnacionais, que funcionavam, tanto como disseminadoras da cultura e literatura portuguesas além fronteiras, como importadoras de ideias que estavam em circulação na época. O artigo explora a correspondência entre a proeminente intelectual Ana de Castro Osório (1872–1935) e o lusófilo e tradutorGöran Björkman (1860–1923), juntamente com a recepção e disseminação das ideias feministas da pensadora Ellen Key (1849–1926) por parte de Virgínia de Castro e Almeida (1874–1946), a fim de ilustrar o intercâmbio transnacional e cultural entre Portugal e Suécia, destacando assim essas intelectuais portuguesas como mediadoras transnacionais na circulação de ideias. O objetivo principal do artigo é destacar o papel desempenhado por essas escritoras portuguesas enquanto mediadoras nos processos transnacionais de intercâmbio cultural, que sustentaram e moldaram a modernização da cultura portuguesa do iníciodo século XX.
