    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.

    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

    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 Paradigmatic City: Origins, Avatars, Frontiers

    Ao longo da história da civilização, as cidades oferecem-nos paradigmas. Elas personificam formas ideais de vida social; surgem como capitais de impérios, mas também como centros de uma identidade nacional, cultural e religiosa; são focos de desenvolvimento económico e político. Todas estas formas se revestem de particular interesse para este congresso. Muitas cidades podem ser consideradas paradigmáticas: Atenas ou Roma, na Antiguidade Clássica; Veneza e Florença, como reflexo das dinâmicas transformações do Renascimento; Londres, Paris e Berlim, como capitais da Modernidade; Nova Iorque, Rio de Janeiro, Tóquio ou Xangai, como epítomes das novas metrópoles em franco crescimento.

At the end of the 1980s, many modern masterpieces had already been demolished or had changed beyond recognition. This seminar about Rehabilitation and Re-use of the Modern Movement Architecture aims at bringing together inspiring viewpoints about this global problem.

    Intermediate Groups in the Portuguese Dominions, 16th-18th century

    Revista de História (Universidade de São Paulo)

    The Revista de História of the University of São Paulo (Brazil) invites interested scholars to submit proposals for articles to be published as part of a ‘dossier’ concerning intermediate groups in the Portuguese dominions on the Early Modern Age. Throughout that period, ‘middle people’ strove to assert themselves in rural areas and helped to shape old and new urban centers in the Portuguese World, corresponding to an increased demand for specialized services and ensuring the necessary extensions of royal representation functions and Church activities. Even though almost non-existent in juridical or normative terms, those groups were recognized both by nationals and foreigners as a complex and vibrant intermediate social layer. Time has come to try and distinguish its specificities, trends of formation and effective roles in social dynamics.

    History: change and continuity in a Global World

    PIUDHIST is an inter-university doctoral programme in which History is viewed from an inter-disciplinary point of view. Despite its unique character, History is regarded here as a field of knowledge which cannot do without a permanent cross fertilization with other areas in the humanities and the social sciences. In our vision, this is also why we consider apposite to attach, as a subtitle for this programme, the words “change and continuity in a global world”.
