This doctoral project aims first of all to debate and deepen a reflection on the conditions of social emergence of a transnational literary space of Portuguese language. How was his constitution? What are his internal conflicts? What are its main actors? To answer these questions, we will focus on the social and professional trajectories of some Portuguese writers working in space. Literary producers are central actors in understanding the socio-history of this space, as they are central artisans in the management and transformation of language. How are the processes of consecration and legitimization carried out inside and outside the Portuguese language? How do they circulate in space? What are the classification hierarchies and the clashes between them and them? The sociology of literature has so far treated its objects and themes always in accordance with national boundaries and territories, without questioning the instability of these concepts and terms, which are more imaginary and ever-changing realities. that stable and unshakable constructions. So we will focus the attention in the emergence of a transnational space of Portuguese language and to seize its process of constitution one will pay attention to its institutionalization also, ie, how the writers participated in the construction of a literary, economic and political network of integration between countries. To make the research one takes as early as the year of 1988 when the Brazilian and Portuguese governments created the Camões literary prize, one of the first literary integration instances between Portuguese-speaking countries. Then we will study a group of writers who have published since 1988 in the Portuguese-speaking countries and we will ask about its social origins, although on how they circulate. (AU)
