    When women film: the documentary in the Iberian peninsula and in the Latin-American continent

    Ce colloque international et interuniversitaire aura pour objet l'étude de la production documentaire réalisée par des femmes des pays de la péninsule ibérique ou du continent latino-américain. Il a pour visée de repenser, dans une perspective transdisciplinaire, les cadres épistémologiques de l’analyse de l’image documentaire. Il réfléchira aux manières dont les films documentaires, maintenus dans une double marginalité, celle du documentaire et celle due au statut des femmes, ont agi comme des opérations d’intelligibilité du monde.

    The Hydraulics in Monumental Buildings

    The hydraulic system is an architectural subsystem that can only be understood in view of the dual constitution of its structure: one at ground level, that referrers to potable water (lower hydraulic subsystem), and other concerning rainwater (upper hydraulic subsystem). They both involve aspects of major importance for the functioning of any building: catchment, distribution and evacuation of the waters. In the last decade, research was carried out on the hydraulic component of historical architecture, either religious or civil, considering technical and artistic issues, not only in Portugal, but throughout Europe.

    The epoch of space. State and new perspectives

    For centuries, the study of time was one of the main academic interests in the field of Humanities. However, in the second half of the 20th century, most scholars and philosophers shifted their focus to the question of space. The interest in studying this in the field of the arts has increased significantly in recent years, and is especially noticeable in the case of literary creations.The growing influence of ecocriticism and geocriticism is especially noticeable in digital humanities. The bridges recently built between these fields are already proving to be productive, as they have led to the development of new tools, approaches, and methodologies, such as deep mapping techniques and the spatial humanities. How have the disciplines evolved in recent years? Do we need to redefine the key concepts regarding space and place? Has our relationship with territory changed? Have we produced new ways of inhabiting space?

    "Literary Brazil" viewed from abroad - transnational perspectives (1822 to the present day)

    « Cahiers de Framespa », 2019/3

    La revue Cahiers de Framespa lance un appel à contributions pour son numéro 2019/3, dont le dossier s'intitule « Le “Brésil littéraire” vu de l’étranger – perspectives transnationales (de 1822 à nos jours) ». Ce dossier souhaite approfondir la réflexion autour de la dimension connectée de l’histoire culturelle du Brésil contemporain à partir d’une perspective différente, à savoir la projection internationale des œuvres littéraires et intellectuelles brésiliennes, ces « lettres » que l’on qualifie volontiers de « Pátrias » au XIXe siècle.

    Borders in the Americas

    However, it is almost impossible to define a common dynamic to the borders of the Americas as their role evolves from one country to the next, and even from one region to the next. On the contrary, these borders are characterized by their “immense variety,” especially in Latin America where they are numerous...The symposium invites participants to broach the various dynamics which prevail in American borders, as well as the mutations and transformations these borders have undergone in the last decade, through different approaches.

    Thinking social bonds in Iberian America. Languages, experiences and temporalities (16th-21st centuries)

    De l’époque de la Conquête et de la colonisation jusqu’à nos jours, les liens sociaux ont été extraordinairement intenses, complexes et conflictuels en Amérique ibérique. Il est possible d’explorer le langage social de la solidarité et de la désunion, et de se demander comment, depuis la fin du XIXe siècle, les sciences sociales et la psychologie sociale ont oscillé entre discours, enquêtes et conceptualisations selon une tentative toujours renouvelée de rendre compte des spécificités, des pathologies et des adaptations de sociétés de plus en plus diversifiées. En tant qu’élément substantiel du lien social, la mémoire collective peut être abordée selon une perspective historiographique qui explore la diversité de ses motifs et de ses manifestations tout au long des cinq derniers siècles.

    Circulation and decentralisation of arts and literature

    2nd symposium of the Guiana Shield

    Loin des centres politiques, économiques, intellectuels européens et brésiliens, la région des Guyanes est un espace hétérogène composé de pays et de territoires rassemblant des caractéristiques uniques. L'université Fédérale d'Amapá (UNIFAP), et l’université de la Guyane française (UG), parce qu'elles sont présentes dans cette localité, sont capables de rassembler les recherches produites dans et sur la région. En ce sens, la IIe journée d’études du Plateau des Guyanes : Circulations et décentralisation des arts et de la littérature s'inscrit dans la perspective de la réflexion sur le « décentrement » de la connaissance. Cette posture implique de réfléchir au rôle des théories et des pratiques académiques dans un contexte situé hors du centre, sans pour autant nier la relation centre-périphérie.

    African Ivories

    In the Atlantic World, 1400-1900

    Since April 2015, the international team working on the project “African Ivories in the Atlantic World: a reassessment of Luso-African ivories” (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia: PTDC/EPH-PAT/1810/2014), composed of 27 researchers from the University of Lisbon, the University of Évora and the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil, has been researching the trade, circulation and production of raw and carved African ivory in the Atlantic area from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century. The team has identified and listed objects from Portuguese and Brazilian (Minas Gerais) collections, also collecting references and descriptions extant in written Portuguese sources. For the first time a selection of ivory pieces was subjected to lab tests with a view to helping establish their age and origin. The project research team has submitted proposals for re-interpreting material culture in the framework of its African contexts of production.

    Insularities and enclaves in colonial and post-colonial circumstances

    Crossings, conflicts and identitarian constructions (15th - 21st centuries)

    Historically, archipelagos were considered as rehearsal spaces for new social constructions. Since colonization and, afterwards, colonialism and imperialism, many of them evolved in association with the strengthening of international networks, while others did not escape isolation and forced unequal integration in different spaces. On the other hand, enclaves were the outcome of historical circumstances, often externally decided, which prompted some degree of insularity regarding the immediate geographical surroundings. When those territories did not become independent, there were demands for autonomy or, at least, some underlying emancipatory and anti-colonialist feelings. Even when these feelings did not mobilize relevant segments of the population, they disclose the alterity – above all cultural – in regard to sovereignty.

    Património cultural e arquivos de família nos arquipélagos da Macaronésia

    Na última década varias linhas de investigação em história e arquivística, têm promovido novas perspetivas de investigação sobre a construção dos arquivos e das fontes históricas. Estas novas correntes, no campo da arquivística histórica e da epistemologia da história, colocam a questão da revalorização dos arquivos de família, não só como repositórios de fontes documentais alternativas aos arquivos institucionais da Igreja e do Estado, mas também como objetos de estudo em si mesmos, devido ao contexto específico de criação e transmissão do arquivo familiar construído à margem dos espaços oficiais do poder político-institucional coevo. Isto faz dos arquivos de família um património comum cujo valor transcende a sua dimensão histórica envolvendo a toda a sociedade, uma vez que resultam especialmente interessantes como expressão de identidades, memórias e discursos históricos plurais. Precisamente porque integram um património cultural comum, a proposta que fazemos é a de aprofundar o conhecimento dos arquivos de família dos arquipélagos da Macaronésia.

    Una perspectiva conectada de América Latina. La difusión de ideas y de experiencias entre categorías sociales.

    “Estudos sociais”, painel: 12/59, 56° Congresso Internacional de Americanistas

    O eixo temático deste simpósio propõe abordar a dimensão vertical e horizontal da circulação de práticas e conhecimentos entre categorias sociais. Trata-se de articular a inter-relação da perspectiva social com a aproximação espacial das dinâmicas através das quais circulam e às quais estão veiculadas ideias e experiências. A articulação de ambos os aspectos permitiria revelar a complexidade desta relação e refletir sobre os mecanismos teóricos que evidenciam a permeabilidade social entre as práticas, conhecimentos e ideias.

    Landscapes

    The “Landscapes” edition of dearq academic journal invites participants to reflect on what has globally been, principally since the beginning of the twentieth century, the evolution of the concept of landscape; the relevant methods of analysis; the methods of representation, of evaluation, and of teaching. This takes into consideration how the concept is a practical project tool that can be used for land-use planning, what landscape’s level of influence has been on the public policy decision-making process, what instruments and regulations have been used, and also how “landscape” and “territory” coexist.
