    The Portuguese presence in Ziguinchor

    History and material and immaterial heritage

    Le colloque a pour objectif, entre autres, de procéder à un inventaire du patrimoine de Ziguinchor laissé par les Portugais, aussi bien sous sa forme matérielle qu’immatérielle : architecture, routes, édifices, cimetières, gastronomie, imaginaire, contes, chants, musique, danse, langues, patronymes, etc. Plus qu’un simple inventaire de patrimoine, il s’agit d’aller à la découverte d’une partie de la mémoire de la ville de Ziguinchor dont le cheminement historique prend parfois sa source en territoire bissau-guinéen.

    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.

    The problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology

    Antropológicas Journal

    The journal Antropológicas is accepting proposals for publication in its next issue that will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology. Manuscripts should be submitted to the page http://revistas.rcaap.pt/antropologicas/login by the 28th of February of 2013. Antropológicas’ number 13th will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology, because since the academic statement of its field of knowledge, ethnographic practice and anthropological writing had many debates, both for the originality of the methodology and the scientific accuracy required by their professionals. Among social sciences, anthropology was the one where theoretical discussion about its rationale demanded a greater critical capacity, by placing into question its methodological grounds.
