    The imagination, construction and habitation of Earth

    ICHT 2017

    Face au développement de nouvelles formes de fonctionalisme (smart cities…), le parti-pris de ce colloque pluri-disciplinaire est de réaffirmer la place des poétiques urbaines dans la fabrique contemporaine des villes. Centré sur les imaginaires, les images matérielles et les approches sensibles du quotidien urbain, il se déclinera à partir de trois objets thématiques : imageries urbaines ; ville douce et bien-être en ville ; habitat et habiter précaires. Les contributions sont ouvertes aux travaux de recherche, expériences ou projets menés par des chercheurs en sciences humaines et sociales, concepteurs d'espaces ou artistes.

    The study and design of landscape as a methodological problem

    First Iberian Colloquium on Landscape

    Landscapes present themselves as sceneries we have inherited, where we live, and from where we draw the resources needed to subsist as a civilisation and as a species. The result of our actions on this heritage will be the legacy to our descendants. In the beginning of the third millennium, the interest in the topic of landscape is increasingly important, transforming this discipline in a research platform where several fields of knowledge intersect. The aim of this colloquium is to reflect about the diversity of multidisciplinary aspects, analytical methods, and intervention techniques related to the study of landscape, establishing a forum focused on the future relationship between humanity and landscape.

    The October Revolution

    III International Congress Karl Marx

    The October Revolution of 1917 was one of the most significant events of the modern era. Its historical meaning can be understood, on the one hand, within the narrative of previous revolutions – starting with the 1789 French Revolution – and of the rise of the labour movement in the nineteenth-century. On the other hand, 1917 also paved the way to several other twentieth-century events and phenomena, such as the Chinese Revolution or the post-colonial turn. On its hundredth anniversary, the Institute for Contemporary History organizes an international conference dedicated to the study and discussion of the October Revolution and its consequences.

    Women and political activism against Latin American dictatorships

    “Orda” journal

    The main objective of this issue is to gather works of researchers from different countries, diverse fields of knowledge and several theoretical as well as methodological perspectives, so as to feed the debate on the issues in keeping with female participation during the dictatorships of Latin America. Contributions should tackle the subject of women activists but they may also consider in a less strict sense the link between women and activism. We wish to address the issue of activism in a broad sense to include a wide range of social movements in which women have played a significant role.

    Identity, memory and history

    The concepts of identity and memory have achieved great relevance in the current historiographical debate. The contemporary societies are in constant self-reflection, debating the process of its own constitution based upon the identification of its elements of unity or of differentiation. History has played an important role in this process, between the recognition of their complexity and the will to establish individual and identifiable groups.

    Cidades globais para a formação de um império: comerciantes e urbanismo

    Revista História, vol. 21. n. 3 (set./dez. 2016)

    O objetivo deste dossiê é refletir sobre o papel dos espaços urbanos na construção das diferentes teias imperiais, ao longo dos séculos XVI a XVIII. Adotando uma óptica transnacional e interdisciplinar se pretende superar as limitações da historiografia mais tradicional para abordar as interações entre cidades, comerciantes e portos durante a Idade Moderna, através de estudos de caso. O debate sobre a interação entre os impérios, as cidades, os comerciantes e o urbanismo, poderá constituir um importante observatório a partir do qual calibrar melhor os efeitos de uma primeira globalização que ocorreu durante a Idade Moderna.

    Lost and Transformed Cities: a digital perspective

    The city is by definition a living entity. It translates itself into a collectiveness of individuals who share and act on a material, social and cultural setting. Its history is one of dreams, achievements and loss. As such, it also bears a history of identity. To know the history of cities is to understand our own place in the contemporaneity. The past is always seen through the eyes of the present and can only be understood as such. On the occasion of the 261st anniversary of the 1755 earthquake in Lisbon, we invite scholars and experts in the fields of heritage studies, digital humanities, history, history of art and information technology to share and debate their experience and knowledge on digital  heritage.

    The role of small towns in building Medieval Europe

    It is our aim to promote an approach to urban studies which, repeatedly but discontinuously, appears on the horizon of historical, geographical, sociological and anthropological research, always with a certain stigma as an inferior and unattractive subject of analysis. Inferior, because each time it has been considered on a comparative scale, it comes up against the variability of definitions of its designating attribute. It is unattractive inasmuch as it is not satisfied by scientific approaches rooted in the intention to capture decisive and major development processes. By combining several scientific areas, this conference aims to give a voice to the small towns of a Medieval Europe, increasingly perceived as "moving".

    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.
