    Por uma Ciência Humboldtiana entre Polônia, Brasil e Alemanha

    Um simpósio transareal

    O evento dedica-se a Alexander von Humboldt, bem como aos contextos e circunstâncias de uma Ciência Humboldtiana entre Polônia, Brasil e Alemanha. O nome Humboldt evoca aqui tanto o objeto partilhado entre diversos trabalhos no âmbito das ciências da cultura, quanto o modelo de uma ciência transdisciplinar e transareal. Grupos de pesquisa que assumem para si o desafio transareal precisam contar não apenas com a competência intercultural dos pesquisadores e pesquisadoras em particular, mas também com a efetiva colaboração entre instituições, para além do intercâmbio bilateral.

    Work and creativity

    Travailler n’est pas exécuter. Ce hiatus entre ce qui est défini comme étant à faire et ce qui est fait conduit à explorer l’épaisseur du travail. On y découvre l’invention de manières de faire qui permettent de singulariser l’activité, la mobilisation et le détournement de moyens visant à dépasser les obstacles rencontrés… Arts de faire, métis, bricolage, intelligence pratique, renormalisation, stylisation... Autant de conceptualisations de la puissance inventive engagée dans le travail vivant.

    Texts, territories, technologies: another extraordinary journey

    6th Hispano-Luso- French conference

    Ce colloque interdisciplinaire se propose d'analyser l’évolution de ces savoirs mobilisés tels que la langue, la littérature, la géographie, les sciences « dures » ou encore l’histoire. La prise en compte de ces savoirs « hétérogènes », les mécanismes de leur transmission, ainsi que le développement individualisé que ces sciences ont eu, seront au cœur de nos interrogations.

    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.

    Work on screen: social memories and identities through cinema

    Since the early 20th century, work in contemporary societies has suffered several processes of change, which, in the context of the current economic and employment crisis, demand equating the structuring of social identities that are built and modified through work. During this period, cinema has been a privileged vehicle for the creation and dissemination of representations on work and, therefore, the shaping of social memories. This international and multidisciplinary seminar aims at gathering and discussing contributions that analyse the social processes involved in the formation of work identities and representations through cinema. It welcomes papers that highlight the main continuities and discontinuities of work memory narratives from the early 20th century to the present days, based on the analysis of specific films or bodies of films (both documentaries and fictions) and their reception.

    Poétiques et politiques du corps dans la contemporanéité

    Contemporary poetics and politics of thee body

    From a comparing and transversal perspective, gathering different theoretical and artistic subjects, this congress aims at opening an interdisciplinary dialog, as well as  putting into play the different questions that contemporaneity asks about the body. Knowing their territorial cultural differences, each historical period produces a different concept of body and person, which is intimately connected to what goes around on the artistic, theoretical, technological, social, politic and economic fields that sustain it. From an interdisciplinary point of view, this meeting intends to propose and get on the tracks of an investigation that can favour understanding the construction of corporality in our contemporary context.

    Digital Humanities in Portugal: building bridges and breaking barriers in the digital age

    Discussion about the role of the Humanities in academia and society has a long history. The confluence of this debate with the changes brought about by digital technology is not new either: one cannot speak of "new technologies" for the Humanities when many researchers turned to digital methods at least four decades ago, in disciplines as diverse as Linguistics, History or Literary Studies. The Conference “Digital Humanities in Portugal” aims precisely to stimulate these intersections, opening up a forum for discussion and sharing of research results or ongoing projects in this field of knowledge.
