    Migrations and exiles

    One of the 20th century's main features was the large movements of people abandoning their places of origin for economic, political and social reasons. Migration-fostering conditions, like the search for sufficient means of subsistence, escaping from armed conflict and political and religious persecution, are intensified by economic crises and the advent of authoritarian Governments. In the host countries, emigrants, exiles and refugees form associations, publish periodicals, hold commemorations and foster socialisation tools, which make them a group with a national identity and/or a specific political positioning. Concomitantly, they undergo acculturation, as a result of their inevitable adjustment to the new reality, translated into the activities they perform and the structure of the relations they keep with the host country.

    Exodes, déplacements et déracinements

    Revue Elohi n°8

    Pour son prochain numéro, la revue Elohi, Peuples indigènes et environnement se propose de réfléchir sur les liens entre le territoire et les constructions, discours, ressentis identitaires des peuples indigènes, en envisageant notamment la question des déplacements des populations. Devenus étrangers sur la terre de leurs ancêtres depuis la colonisation, les indigènes ont connu des processus de déterritorialisation, reterritorialisation et exodes. Souhaitant également inclure les problématiques brésiliennes à ses travaux, la revue Elohi accueillera des contributions qui examinent la notion de « terre indigène », la démarcation d’un territoire et la représentation que s’en font les peuples indigènes et non-­indigènes.

    Merchants, jurists and other "intermediate groups" in Early Modern Southern Europe

    Merchants, farmers, jurists, clerks in large institutions, secretaries, independent landowners, local elites and highly sought master craftsmen, among many others, are individuals with an ambiguous social status. Looking at who was not born exactly noble, nor exactly commoner, but stood on the border between one world and the other, is one of the goals of this initiative. As part of a project developed in Portugal focusing on the Holy Office’s familiaturas, it will be held on September 16 and 17, 2015, a workshop at Escuela Española de Historia and Archaeological in Rome. Our aim is to select a total of 8 applicants, that will be joined by 4 guest speakers, for a joint reflection on the dynamics and profiles of ‘intermediate groups’, as well as on the methodologies for their study in Early Modern Times.
