    History and polemics: historiographical debates and the public space

    Ever since history became an academic knowledge, historiographical debates have been exceptional moments of construction, condensation and dissensus, often resulting in historiographical turns. Controversies around specific themes have divided entire fields of knowledge production, bringing into light different, often contrasting conceptions, methodologies and practices of historical knowledge. Such debates were, at the same time, moments in which the description and interpretation of the past represented a public intervention in the present, in which the defense of a certain way of making sense of history was also a way of taking of sides in a specific contemporary political discussion. Historiographical polemics were therefore moments in which historiographical knowledge had to confront in the public space other approaches to the past, thus making visible, and challenging, the paradigms that rule the historical discipline and public history.

    #MariellePresente - Transnational Resistances

    The Gender and Diversity Journal, a feminist and queer review from the northeastern region of Brazil, invites everyone to submit articles, essays, interviews, field journals, reports and other texts for the special issue entitled "#MariellePresente: Transnational Resistances".

Given the political nature of her assassination, many actions denouncing the crime were organized around the world.

    Estatutos, usos e apropriações da memória: reflexões a partir de diferentes olhares disciplinares

    A memória nas ciências humanas é, certo, intrinsecamente contígua à pesquisa histórica. Portanto, ela abarca as disciplinas nelas inscritas por meio de diferentes “métodos” e recursos que evoluíram no decorrer dos séculos segundo a relação que se manteve com os diversos suportes materiais e imateriais dessa fonte incomensurável que é a memória. De Sócrates/Platão (maiêutica - questionamentos e memória) e Epicuro (prolepse - repetições e memória) à Freud, Halbwachs, Marc Ferro e Paul Ricœur, entre tantos outros (cf. bibliografia indicativa), a memória é pensada como sendo perceptível dentro de um eixo flexível muitas vezes à beira do esquecimento a despeito de todo rigor acadêmico requerido e da tentativa de apreender esse sistema complexo.

    Conference, symposium - America

    Thinking Latin-American Right-Wings in the XXth Century

    This conference is the continuation of two previous conferences held in France (2014) and Argentina (2016) which saw the gradual emergence of a community of researchers working on the questions of identities, ideas, practices and discourses of actors and movements from Latin American rightwing. It is difficult to establish the precise conceptual limits of the rightwing because of the heterogeneity and plurality of the groups and movements that have historically been part of this family and which are thus characterized by the presence of diverse political traditions. It is therefore essential to imagine flexible boundaries when considering rightwing history and taking into account the changes it experienced over time. Our purpose is not to establish canonical definitions, but rather to contribute to set general frameworks for this field of study whose historical relevance and actuality are no longer to be demonstrated, but whose limits and fundamental characteristics are still debated.

    Municipalisation and urban management in Mozambique

    Le Mozambique est encore très largement géré par l'administration de l'État central: il n'y a que 58 municipalités, toutes urbaines. La questionne est donc très politique, puisque toute avancée de la municipalisation permet à l'opposition d'acquérir plus de poids, même si le parti au pouvoir garde le contrôle sur la majorité d'entre elles. Ce colloque international aura lieu une dizaine de jours après la tenue des élections municipales d'octobre 2018, qui seront un test grandeur nature pour les élections présidentielles et législatives de l'année suivante...

    Amílcar Cabral: The “Anonymous Fighter” for the Mankind Fundamental Freedoms

    In 1971, Amílcar Cabral presented himself in the United Nations (UN) as an “anonymous fighter” engaged in the struggle for the fundamental freedoms of the populations of Guinea and Cape Verde, as well as of all mankind. Such affirmation was not casual, since Cabral adopted the status of “anonymous fighter” in other circumstances, arguing that he was struggling for the human dignity, progress and happiness. The main goal of the conference is to bring together academics studying Cabral trajectory, institutions involved in preserving his memory and personalities which became acquainted with him.
