    Endowment for transmission? The social and economic history of the Jewish family (15th-19th centuries)

    Une histoire économique et sociale de la famille juive (XVe-XIXe siècle)

    La storia ebraica costituisce un capitolo rilevante e particolarmente fecondo dell’attuale dibattito scientifico, sia sul versante storico-economico, che su quello antropologico, culturale e religioso. All’interno di un orizzonte di ricerca molto vasto, che identifica i Jewish studies come vero e proprio campo disciplinare, il convegno si propone di indagare, attraverso un’ottica comparativa, uno specifico argomento: le forme e le funzioni di utilizzo delle doti. L’istituzione dotale si configurava come uno degli elementi strategici nelle forme di organizzazione delle società ebraiche in Antico regime. Il suo studio ravvicinato e comparato consente, pertanto, di gettare una luce su molteplici aspetti.

    Symbol and Design in Contemporary Churches

    The Third International Seminar intends to be an appointment of critical reflection on the difficulties that symbol has gone through in the twentieth-century liturgical architecture. After years of lack of interest for all related subjects, during the last decades architecture is devoting increasing attention to symbol, this way highlighting the ongoing corresponding anthropological transformation. However, this kind of research also requires mature awareness both of the reasons why it has become necessary nowadays and of the inter-disciplinary developments it has generated during the twentieth century. In the Catholic background there are two unavoidable reference points: Romano Guardini and the dogmatic pronouncements of the Second Vatican Council that acknowledged the importance of symbols.

    Islands and borders into modern and contemporary Mediterranean

    III international seminar "Itinera. New perpectives on historical and geographical research"

    El Seminario de 2015 tiene como hilo conductor los espacios insulares y de frontera en las edades Moderna y Contemporánea, así como las sociedades en que se asientan, en el contexto mediterráneo desde una perspectiva de la larga duración e interdisciplinariedad. El encuentro constituye una ocasión para reflexionar sobre el tema de la frontera como lugar de enccuentro, travesía y tránsito; al igual que sobre el rol de las islas y de las sociedades insulares, bien como frontera, bien como nodo en el seno de una tupida red de transmisión de saberes. La pretensión del Seminario es la de superar, también desde el punto de vista geográfico, el concepto de aislamiento, proponiendo, por el contrario, el de un sistema de islas en el Mediterráneo.
