    Ex-voto: international perspectives

    Des experts internationaux se réunissent pour commenter la particularité de l'objet votif. L'ex-voto peut être défini comme un remerciement que les croyants font à une divinité, mais les pratiques dévotionnelles révèlent une complexité dans l'usage du votif. Des chercheurs travaillant en France, au Japon, au Moyen Orient et au Mexique proposent d'interroger et d'expliquer cette matérialité qu'impose l'ex-voto. Durant ce symposium, seront analysés l'amplitude votive, les modalités de l'écriture du voeu, les créations actuelles qui perpétuent et subvertissent la tradition iconographique et thématique, ainsi que les diverses perspectives pour la conservation et la valorisation de l'ex-voto.

    XVII Congreso latinoamericano de religion y etnicidad : movilidad religiosa y conflicto. Patrimonio cultural y turismo

    La religion en tant que réalité sociale s'est historiquement manifestée à travers des actes dans lesquels les personnes se réunissent périodiquement pour exprimer des croyances partagées. Pour ce symposium nous encourageons l'envoi de propositions basées sur des travaux de terrain et rendant compte de l'héritage de l'évangélisation dans le catholicisme latino-américain, afin de montrer les espaces publics et privés dans lesquels se célèbrent et se matérialisent de nouveaux langages communs - artistiques, symboliques, gestuels - qui font des pratiques religieuses l'expression d'une société dans un contexte particulier, à un moment précis de son histoire, non pas comme des manifestations de syncrétisme, mais plutôt comme des processus d'intégration sociale, à travers lesquels plusieurs cultures s'influencent mutuellement.

    The Franciscans in Mexico

    Five Centuries of Cultural Influence

    Generations of scholars have studied the multi-faceted experiences of the Franciscans in Mexico and the ways in which the Franciscan order shaped New Spain and the early Mexican republic. This conference examines the range of Franciscan influence and analyzes new scholarship that focuses on the multiple discourses with which friars engaged native peoples, creole populations, the vice-regal authorities, and other actors throughout the Spanish empire.  The conference brings together junior and senior scholars to study the long Franciscan experience in Mexico on the eve of the commemoration of the quincentenary of the Spanish — and thus the Franciscan— presence in Mexico.

    IV International Conference of Myth Criticism

    Myth and Emotions

    Along with rational logic there is an emotional logic, responsible for many actions that we carry out. Myth Criticism tends to tackle mythical stories from a structural, social and historical perspective. However, it often ignores the emotional component. It seems as if the affective dimension, particularly active in our contemporary society, is not considered relevant in the studies of mythology. The Conference will examine the function undertaken by emotions in the structure of mythical stories and in the processes of mythification of characters and historical events. The object of the study will focus on ancient, medieval and modern myths in contemporary literature and art (since 1900).

    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”).

    The problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology

    Antropológicas Journal

    The journal Antropológicas is accepting proposals for publication in its next issue that will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology. Manuscripts should be submitted to the page http://revistas.rcaap.pt/antropologicas/login by the 28th of February of 2013. Antropológicas’ number 13th will address the problem of ethnographic and anthropological methodology, because since the academic statement of its field of knowledge, ethnographic practice and anthropological writing had many debates, both for the originality of the methodology and the scientific accuracy required by their professionals. Among social sciences, anthropology was the one where theoretical discussion about its rationale demanded a greater critical capacity, by placing into question its methodological grounds.
