    The Great War and the Azores: from naval strategy to trench warfare

    This meeting aims to analyze the relationship of the Atlantic, with particular emphasis on the Azores, the complex logistical support to the belligerents, regardless of the stage of war being European or colonial, and the multiple dynamics involved, whether political, economic, ideological or geographical. Likewise, it seeks to value and dignify not only the memory of those who act as, but the material and immaterial heritage, in the year in which the bombing of the main Azorean city and the creation of a foreign naval base in its territory is evoked.

    The New Medieval Lisbon 1147-1217

    The Ways of the West and the East

    Between the 23rd and 25th of October 2017, the Institute for Medieval Studies (IEM) will organize the V colloquium “The New Medieval Lisbon”. The commemorative evocation of the conquests of Lisbon in 1147 and of Alcácer do Sal in 1217 is the pretext for a broader debate not only around these events, their meaning and impact, but also on its wider context, and on the diversity of the ways that, at the time, were being shaped and reshaped, both in the peninsular context and in the wider scenarios which linked the West to the East.

    Feminisms and ARTivism in the Americas (20th-21st centuries)

    Les féminismes contre-hégémoniques sont globalement peu connus en France. La théorie et l’action des femmes états-uniennes – connu sous le nom de black feminism – suscite certes un intérêt croissant chez les chercheur·e·s depuis la fin du XXe siècle. En revanche, les apports théoriques et les formes de mobilisation des autres régions américaines sont beaucoup moins visibilisés. Envisagé dans une perspective comparative et pluridisciplinaire, ce colloque voudrait approfondir la connaissance de ces mouvements en France. En s’attachant à la pluralité et à la force de leur action, la réflexion portera sur les caractères spécifiques et leur contribution à la lutte contre les oppressions de classe, de race, de genre et de sexualité. Une attention toute particulière sera portée à l’étude de la pluralité des mobilisations notamment celle qui envisage l’art comme forme de lutte.

    Streets in every way

    Iberian worlds - Europe, America, Africa, Asia, 19th-21st centuries

    Élément constituant de la ville, la rue a beaucoup évolué au fil des siècles. Assurant la mise en relation des lieux, des fonctions et des groupes sociaux, elle est une forme urbaine qui a une configuration, une architecture, une histoire. Elle a ses logiques, ses dynamiques et ses usages. Ses pratiques et ses représentations sont liées à l’espace urbain dans lequel elle s’inscrit ; elles dépendent aussi de facteurs politiques et socio-économiques. Le « sens » de la rue pouvant donc varier considérablement, il est nécessaire d’aborder celle-ci sous l’angle d’un certain relativisme, en gardant présente à l’esprit la notion d’échelle. Ce colloque envisage la rue dans les mondes ibériques à travers ses dimensions fonctionnelles, socio-économiques, politiques et culturelles, au prisme des lieux et des éléments qui la composent, de ses acteurs et de ses créations. Quatre axes seront privilégiés : la « rue de l’urbaniste » ; Un espace socio-économique : lieu de passage et d’échanges ; Un espace symbolique : « ordre et désordres » ; Un espace de création artistique et langagière

    Europe and the Cold War – Changes and Disruptions

    5th Annual Meeting “Europe and the World”

    Au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, l’Europe est en pleine décadence. Au cours de cette période difficile, la confrontation entre les deux Europes ne cesse de s’accroître. Face à l’expansionnisme soviétique, les pays d’Europe occidentale se tournent vers les États-Unis qui leurs octroient de l’aide économique et de la protection militaire. La reconstruction de l’Europe fait alors l’objet de débats houleux. Sous la pression des mouvements européanistes, les débats prennent de l’élan surtout à partir de 1948 dans le but de rebâtir l’Europe et la paix en Europe. L’atmosphère de « Guerre froide » est très présente depuis 1946.

    Writing in higher education, SCRIPTA journal, issue 21, no.43

    Revue SCRIPTA, Vol. 21, Nº 43

    The current challenges concerning writing in university education, regardless of the training stages held by higher education (graduation, specialization, Master's, and PhD), emerge as fertile ground for research, mainly in the context of applied linguistics. Thus, Scripta Journal (PUC Minas, Brasil) proposes this special issue on writing practices in academic and scientific life. On one hand, there is interest in strengthening study perspectives that may bring impacts on didactic devices and pedagogical practices adopted in university education; on the other, this volume aims to expand the possibilities of theoretical/ methodological approaches and intersections in the study of academic and scientific writing.

    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.
