    Thinking commemorations like ritualised practical spaces

    At the crossroads of history and anthropology

    C’est à partir des pratiques commémoratives et des luttes politiques et sociales auxquelles elles sont associées que nous aimerions repenser les temps et les espaces des colonialités contemporaines. En nous interrogeant, sur les modalités pratiques d’exposition et de ritualisation des mémoires politiques en proie à des hégémonies qui leur sont exogènes. De nombreux événements historiques survenus dans le monde, par exemple au Chiapas au Mexique, ou bien au Brésil, ici et là en Afrique par exemple en Algérie, pays qui a présenté des commémorations politiques par la négative, ou bien encore en Europe (Irlande du Nord, Portugal, Catalogne) tout comme la récente contestation sociale et politique en France, fournissent de nombreux arguments pour penser dans ce sens. L’objectif de ce colloque sera de décrire et de comprendre les modalités de fonctionnement de certaines pratiques mémorielles contre-hégémoniques, dans leurs diversités, et l’institution des traditions qui en découlent.

    Women of the Americas

    The recognition of women’s place in American societies has become a crucial social, cultural, political and economic issue, as evidenced by worldwide protest movements such as Ni Una Menos that started in Argentina – a feminist movement fighting against feminicides and gender-based violence – or the Women’s March against President Donald Trump in the United States. Whether these protests have to do with the struggle for women’s right to vote, the sexual revolution that started in the 1960s, or social movements denouncing gender-based violence in urban and rural environments, they highlight a continuity between yesterday’s feminist fights and their re-adaptation in the public space.

    Património cultural e arquivos de família nos arquipélagos da Macaronésia

    Na última década varias linhas de investigação em história e arquivística, têm promovido novas perspetivas de investigação sobre a construção dos arquivos e das fontes históricas. Estas novas correntes, no campo da arquivística histórica e da epistemologia da história, colocam a questão da revalorização dos arquivos de família, não só como repositórios de fontes documentais alternativas aos arquivos institucionais da Igreja e do Estado, mas também como objetos de estudo em si mesmos, devido ao contexto específico de criação e transmissão do arquivo familiar construído à margem dos espaços oficiais do poder político-institucional coevo. Isto faz dos arquivos de família um património comum cujo valor transcende a sua dimensão histórica envolvendo a toda a sociedade, uma vez que resultam especialmente interessantes como expressão de identidades, memórias e discursos históricos plurais. Precisamente porque integram um património cultural comum, a proposta que fazemos é a de aprofundar o conhecimento dos arquivos de família dos arquipélagos da Macaronésia.

    Africa and Latin America - transatlantic interactions

    Ce colloque vise à interroger et débattre sur les différentes interactions sociales, historiques, politiques, épistémologiques entre le continent africain et latino-américain. Au cours de ce colloque, il ne s’agira pas seulement de jeter un regard sur le chemin parcouru ni de faire le bilan des recherches effectuées au sein du Centre d’études et de recherches afro-ibéro-américaines (CERAFIA). Mais, il faudra surtout repenser le CERAFIA en dessinant un nouvel avenir et de nouveaux enjeux. Il faudra également renforcer son insertion pluridisciplinaire au sein de la recherche scientifique gabonaise, sans rien lâcher de sa perspective comparatiste et triangulaire entre l’Europe, l’Afrique et l’Amérique latine.

    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.

    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.

    Work on screen: social memories and identities through cinema

    Since the early 20th century, work in contemporary societies has suffered several processes of change, which, in the context of the current economic and employment crisis, demand equating the structuring of social identities that are built and modified through work. During this period, cinema has been a privileged vehicle for the creation and dissemination of representations on work and, therefore, the shaping of social memories. This international and multidisciplinary seminar aims at gathering and discussing contributions that analyse the social processes involved in the formation of work identities and representations through cinema. It welcomes papers that highlight the main continuities and discontinuities of work memory narratives from the early 20th century to the present days, based on the analysis of specific films or bodies of films (both documentaries and fictions) and their reception.

    Merchants, jurists and other "intermediate groups" in Early Modern Southern Europe

    Merchants, farmers, jurists, clerks in large institutions, secretaries, independent landowners, local elites and highly sought master craftsmen, among many others, are individuals with an ambiguous social status. Looking at who was not born exactly noble, nor exactly commoner, but stood on the border between one world and the other, is one of the goals of this initiative. As part of a project developed in Portugal focusing on the Holy Office’s familiaturas, it will be held on September 16 and 17, 2015, a workshop at Escuela Española de Historia and Archaeological in Rome. Our aim is to select a total of 8 applicants, that will be joined by 4 guest speakers, for a joint reflection on the dynamics and profiles of ‘intermediate groups’, as well as on the methodologies for their study in Early Modern Times.

    Discrepancies: the life and work of José Rodrigues Miguéis

    Lorsqu’il quitte le Portugal pour les États-Unis en 1935, José Rodrigues Miguéis (1901-1980) est un écrivain prometteur et un journaliste et militant politique reconnu, ancien membre du groupe Seara Nova, maintenant proche des communistes. À New-York, il poursuit ses activités militantes durant une dizaine d’années puis, après une grave maladie et une tentative infructueuse de retour définitif au Portugal, il finit par se consacrer pleinement à l’écriture. La majeure partie de son œuvre ne sera publiée en volume qu’à partir de 1958, à près de soixante ans, si bien que l’écrivain exilé se retrouve en décalage avec le Portugal (ses lecteurs, la société et la dictature en vigueur), mais aussi avec la vision du monde ayant présidé à l’écriture d’une grande partie de ses écrits inédits. C’est dans le cadre de ce parcours biobibliographique particulier que les communicants s’intéresseront à l’œuvre fictionnelle et non fictionnelle migueisienne. Alors que son œuvre est de plus en plus étudiée au Portugal, aux USA et au Brésil, ce premier colloque consacré à José Rodrigues Miguéis en France sera l’occasion de mieux faire connaître cette grande figure méconnue de l’histoire culturelle portugaise du XXe siècle.

    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.

    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”).

    Revolution and cinema: the Portuguese example

    In honour of the fortieth anniversary of the Carnation Revolution, this three-day international conference seeks to interrogate the cinematic representation of the political event from 1974 to today. Paul Ricœur states that “rethinking is a form that cancels temporal distance.” To rethink the revolution would then entail making the revolution present, making it come alive, bringing the past and the present together, questioning the effects of the passing of time on the images, the narratives and on cinema itself as an historical device. Today’s acute economic and political crisis in Portugal shakes the very foundations of April’s democracy, and this legacy could perhaps use the present as the inaugural strength of another history to come. Taking the cinema of revolution as a nodal point and as a major historical shift, which links – other than referential and chronological ones –, unify the pre- and post-revolutionary Portuguese cinemas? In other words, how can this idea of “revolution” remain, irrigate and illuminate Portuguese cinema?

    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”.
