    Publication of books in e-book format

    Centro Interdisciplinar de História, Culturas e Sociedades (CIDEHUS) has a collection of books with peer review: Biblioteca: Estudos e Colóquios – intended to the publication of monographic works. This collection has an international scientific committee and an editorial committee, in addition to an adviser. Every year, this collection makes an open call to the academic community in general and not only to the members of CIDEHUS for publication purposes. This is the 2018 call. The works, however, will almost assuredly only be published in 2019.

    Power and media, media power Insights on the Americas

    Insights on the Americas

    For its 11th issue, RITA proposes to interrogate the links between power and media in the Americas. Several areas of debate can be suggested, although they should not be considered as exclusive. Articles making a critical analysis of official media as well as opposition media, in varied historical and geographical contexts, will of course be welcome. Other articles may deal with the treatment of popular movements by the media. Critical reflections on the relationship between media and economic power are also encouraged. The Thema section can also include analysis of the current diversification of information media by focusing, for instance, on the emergence of “alternative” media on the Internet, or on the power of fake news over the construction of collective representations.

    Refolution: old and new paradigms

    Highlighting the 500-year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation allows us to recollect a cultural, intellectual and political revolution that sprang from it. It is indisputable that the Reform gave rise to one of the most decisive events in European history and the world at large, having thoroughly influenced the theological, historical, mental and political perceptions of western culture.

    African Socialism | Socialism in Africa

    It is high time to give Africa its rightful place in the global historiography of socialism and to socialism its right in the History of Africa. Historians of socialism systematically forget Africa. Yet many African states professed “African” or scientific socialism, many African political actors used the theoretical toolbox drawn from the Marxist tradition. It offered support for the political advancement of colonial populations and the building of post-colonial States. The USSR, China, Cuba, offered ready-to-use models. Some states even tried to invent the ir own forms of African socialism, adapted to the specific conditions of Africa and true to its theoretical roots.

    Discrepancies: the life and work of José Rodrigues Miguéis

    Lorsqu’il quitte le Portugal pour les États-Unis en 1935, José Rodrigues Miguéis (1901-1980) est un écrivain prometteur et un journaliste et militant politique reconnu, ancien membre du groupe Seara Nova, maintenant proche des communistes. À New-York, il poursuit ses activités militantes durant une dizaine d’années puis, après une grave maladie et une tentative infructueuse de retour définitif au Portugal, il finit par se consacrer pleinement à l’écriture. La majeure partie de son œuvre ne sera publiée en volume qu’à partir de 1958, à près de soixante ans, si bien que l’écrivain exilé se retrouve en décalage avec le Portugal (ses lecteurs, la société et la dictature en vigueur), mais aussi avec la vision du monde ayant présidé à l’écriture d’une grande partie de ses écrits inédits. C’est dans le cadre de ce parcours biobibliographique particulier que les communicants s’intéresseront à l’œuvre fictionnelle et non fictionnelle migueisienne. Alors que son œuvre est de plus en plus étudiée au Portugal, aux USA et au Brésil, ce premier colloque consacré à José Rodrigues Miguéis en France sera l’occasion de mieux faire connaître cette grande figure méconnue de l’histoire culturelle portugaise du XXe siècle.

    Purity and Impurity

    Hamsa. Journal of Judaic and Islamic Studies, nº 2

    “Purity” and “Impurity” establish themselves as structural categories in both Islam and Judaism, embracing dimensions as diverse as the body, food, clothing and even space itself. The 2nd issue of the journal Hamsa will be devoted to this wide-ranging theme, seeking to obtain diachronic historical perspectives. To this effect, we aim to promote the analysis of interfaith relationships, in those instances where purity and impurity are projected in contacts with the Other. Those dimensions concern not only the minorities, but also affect Christianitas itself, through interiorization of these concepts and their application to minority communities (as is the case, for example, with limpeza de sangue - “cleanliness of blood”).

    Education, ethics and politics in contemporary times

    Dans un moment où l’air du temps impose des ruptures (et pas encore une continuité) par rapport à l’ordre établi, la relation entre éthique, politique et éducation se donne à penser. Non pas comme « objet », mais comme interpellation vitale. La pensée française joue un rôle pivot en ce qui concerne les questions contemporaines d’intégration des différences culturelles (la philosophie de la différence) et de réflexion sur les enjeux politiques qui en découlent (l’idée d’une démocratie à venir).

    Thinking rights in Latin America in the 20th century

    This conference purports to think about the right-wing in twentieth-century Latin America. We shall seek to discover whether the current Latin American right-wing movements are merely the prolongation of XIXth century conservatism, or if a series of events might explain the emergence of new actors in the XXth century. This will enable us to enquire into which geographical scale - national or continental - is relevant when examining this concept. We expect papers from scholars in various social sciences, based on monographic and comparative historical examples. Our purpose is to historicize the concept and the object.
