João Vicente completed a degree in Modern Languages and Literature, specializing in English and Portuguese studies, at the University of Lisbon. At the same university, he also completed a degree in Language and Literature teaching. His research focuses on the representations of memory (individual, familial, national and transnational) in the work of Portuguese novelist Mário Cláudio (1941). Concurrently, he is concerned with an interrelated trend found in Cláudio's fiction, namely the configuration of ideas regarding the author/creator and the poetic act.
