Résumé

During the contemporaneity, military conflicts often provoked junctures of rupture and transformation in pre-existing realities, whether in political, economic or social contexts, or in cultural, scientific and intellectual domains, endued, sometimes of more conservative typologies or yet of a more modernising nature. In this sense, we intend to initiate an interdisciplinary debate on the problematic of "War, University and Science", bearing in mind these multiple relationships and interdependencies, as well as the associated epistemological problematic.

During the contemporaneity, military conflicts often provoked junctures of rupture and transformation in pre-existing realities, whether in political, economic or social contexts, or in cultural, scientific and intellectual domains, endued, sometimes of more conservative typologies or yet of a more modernising nature. In this sense, we intend to initiate an interdisciplinary debate on the problematic of "War, University and Science", bearing in mind these multiple relationships and interdependencies, as well as the associated epistemological problematic.

The links between War, University and Science are wide and diverse, according to various historical junctures, it is therefore our intention to explore and analyse questions related to different national and international contexts, with different actors, spaces and the involved phenomena.

We are specially keen at exploring topics related to academic scientific and technological production and its connection with the war, understanding military conflicts as a factor of modernization and scientific development: the impact of war within the University and the academia in general, and its consequences on scientific development, keeping in mind the way in which the academia, herself, experienced the war; the logical management of the war effort, and the problematic of mobilization/demobilization of academics and scientists.
