    Symbol and Design in Contemporary Churches

    The Third International Seminar intends to be an appointment of critical reflection on the difficulties that symbol has gone through in the twentieth-century liturgical architecture. After years of lack of interest for all related subjects, during the last decades architecture is devoting increasing attention to symbol, this way highlighting the ongoing corresponding anthropological transformation. However, this kind of research also requires mature awareness both of the reasons why it has become necessary nowadays and of the inter-disciplinary developments it has generated during the twentieth century. In the Catholic background there are two unavoidable reference points: Romano Guardini and the dogmatic pronouncements of the Second Vatican Council that acknowledged the importance of symbols.

    Islands and borders into modern and contemporary Mediterranean

    III international seminar "Itinera. New perpectives on historical and geographical research"

    El Seminario de 2015 tiene como hilo conductor los espacios insulares y de frontera en las edades Moderna y Contemporánea, así como las sociedades en que se asientan, en el contexto mediterráneo desde una perspectiva de la larga duración e interdisciplinariedad. El encuentro constituye una ocasión para reflexionar sobre el tema de la frontera como lugar de enccuentro, travesía y tránsito; al igual que sobre el rol de las islas y de las sociedades insulares, bien como frontera, bien como nodo en el seno de una tupida red de transmisión de saberes. La pretensión del Seminario es la de superar, también desde el punto de vista geográfico, el concepto de aislamiento, proponiendo, por el contrario, el de un sistema de islas en el Mediterráneo.

    Il Laterizio nei cantieri imperiali — Roma ed il Mediterraneo

    Questo workshop intende promuovere il dibattito, su scala mediterranea, intorno al materiale di costruzione emblematico dell’architettura antica. Si tratterà in particolare di osservare come il laterizio abbia servito il potere imperiale, come abbia partecipato all’innovazione e alla trasmissione del sapere tecnico romano, come abbia influenzato e determinato l’organizzazione dei cantieri imperiali, com’è stato prodotto e diffuso attraverso l’Impero ed infine, come si è integrato nei processi di romanizzazione.

    Letters between women, exchanges and epistolary mediations

    Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, 8th-15th century

    Première rencontre de MISSIVA (Lettres de femmes dans l’Europe médiévale, Espagne, France, Italie, Portugal, VIIIe-XVe s.) dans le cadre des programmes pluriannuels de l’École des hautes études hispaniques et ibériques, ce colloque international propose une réflexion sur l’intérêt de l’épistolaire pour appréhender l’histoire des femmes. Il est consacré en particulier à la correspondance entre femmes et à l’émergence de ce que l’on pourrait considérer comme de véritables chaînes de médiation, ainsi qu’aux enjeux de ce type de sources. Dans quels contextes les femmes s’écrivent-elles et à quel propos ? Ces documents ont-ils une spécificité formelle et discursive ? Que révèlent les lettres de femmes des liens qu’elles entretiennent avec leurs correspondants ? Que nous apprennent-elles du champ d’action et d’influence de ces femmes ? Telles sont les questions qui seront abordées au cours de la manifestation scientifique.

    Storia e psichiatria

    Metodologia, temi, fonti

    A cent’anni dalla fine del Primo conflitto mondiale e a quarant’anni dall’approvazione della cosiddetta Legge Basaglia, si rinnova l’attenzione della storiografia sui processi di alienazione mentale, sulla loro comprensione e sul loro trattamento. A fronte di un crescente interesse, soprattutto da parte della storiografia internazionale, verso questo genere di tematiche, in Italia persiste un atteggiamento di sospetto e diffidenza, in parte dovuto alla ridotta conoscenza delle possibilità offerte da un dialogo tanto affascinante quanto rischioso. Quali sono i rapporti tra storiografia e psichiatria? Quali strumenti deve padroneggiare lo storico per una adeguata problematizzazione dell’argomento? Quale uso fare delle fonti psichiatriche? Quali risultati sono stati raggiunti in questi anni dagli storici italiani che hanno affrontato il tema? Questi sono soltanto alcuni degli interrogativi che il confronto tra le due discipline solleva.

    La città multietnica nel mondo mediterraneo

    Storia, cultura, patrimonio

    This meeting aims to foster a discussion about the continuities and disruptions which have conditioned the multi-ethnic dimension of our cities. We would like to focus on the specificities of places and time in our millennial history that have produced both tangible and intangible cultural heritage (a heritage which today seems strongly under attack). We aim for a historical perspective –  by drawing attention on well-documented case-studies offering comparative insights – without however forgetting to ask ourselves the meaning of our research in the troubled world we live in; without anachronisms, but also without hiding behind the pretext of specialisms, while in front of our eyes the Mediterranean world is more than ever a theatre of death, exclusion, suffering.

    Misticismo, letteratura e psicologia

    Immaginari ed esperienze mistiche in letteratura e psicologia

    In primo luogo, ci chiediamo quali strumenti può apportare la psicologia allo studio della letteratura detta «mistica». In secondo luogo, vorremmo indagare le infinite potenzialità del testo letterario nell’ambito degli studi psicologici, coscienti del fatto che l’enunciazione letteraria può dimostrarsi una risorsa preziosa per lo studio della mente e della coscienza.

    “Aconchiar el mundo y reformar la Yglesia". Charles V and the religion

    "Riforma e Movimenti Religiosi" Journal n°6 (December 2019)

    In the 500th anniversary of the imperial election of Charles V, the journal Riforma e Movimenti Religiosi intends to set up a monographic issue dedicated to one of the events that symbolically mark a rupture in European history, both for the confluence of boundless dominions under the Habsburg crown with its expansion on new seas and new continents and for the onset of the Protestant Reformation. These transformations gave rise to unprecedented links between politics and religion and "long term" consequences in the history of the old continent, destined to survive until today. It was then that myths of the past still alive, such as the authority of the imperial crown and the papal tiara as supreme guardians of the European Christianitas against the expansionism of the Ottoman empire, came to their final decline between bitter mutual conflicts.

    The Nourishment of the State and the Healt of the "Res publica"

    Origins, Structure and Development of Public Expenditure in Europe (XIIIth-XVIIth centuries)

    The State, in the most generic sense of political body, the expense and the tax system have followed inseparable ways from the 13th century up to the present. For it the Congress tries to offer a vision that allows us to remove from the traditional optics of analysis of the income and the expense from a theoretical budgetary balance and to enter the relation between expense, determining economic, political structures and social theory. Taking as a territorial base the spaces governed or strongly influenced by the Hispanic Monarchy at the end of the 16th century, three sections of this Congress claim the first approximation to the expense and the debt that bears all the implied factors in mind. An essential element of the same one is his interdisciplinary approximation and the specialists' incorporation in the public expenditure of the present to need the concepts and limits of the structure of the public expenditure in the Europe Low middle ages and Modern age. The meeting will assemble law historians, economic historians and general historians from seven European countries during four daysWebsite: http://www.arcacomunis.uma.es/congresos/gasto/index.html

    Contribution to a History of Sustainable Development

    La protection et la valorisation des ressources naturelles et environnementales n’est pas nouvelle, malgré le relief que prend cette question depuis quelques décennies. Au détour des archives, de multiples questions relatives à ces thématiques affleurent régulièrement, et un programme tel que le PRIDAES peut légitimement s’orienter vers l’étude de pratiques, de règles et d’institutions qui, aux yeux de beaucoup, n’ont pas d’histoire.
