Abstract

PINA-CABRA, João de. Lusotopy as Ecumene. Rev. bras. Ci. Soc. [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.74, pp. 5-20. ISSN 0102-6909.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-69092010000300001.

Our contemporary world has become global in the sense that it is an undivided space of human intercommunication - an ecumene, a network of networks. I suggest that the concept of ecumene may obviate some of the limitations that have been identified in the sociocentric notions that marked the social sciences during the twentieth century, such as "society" or "culture."

Keywords : Portuguese language; Ecumene; Diaspora; Post-colonialism.
