    Work and creativity

    Travailler n’est pas exécuter. Ce hiatus entre ce qui est défini comme étant à faire et ce qui est fait conduit à explorer l’épaisseur du travail. On y découvre l’invention de manières de faire qui permettent de singulariser l’activité, la mobilisation et le détournement de moyens visant à dépasser les obstacles rencontrés… Arts de faire, métis, bricolage, intelligence pratique, renormalisation, stylisation... Autant de conceptualisations de la puissance inventive engagée dans le travail vivant.

    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.

    Poétiques et politiques du corps dans la contemporanéité

    Contemporary poetics and politics of thee body

    From a comparing and transversal perspective, gathering different theoretical and artistic subjects, this congress aims at opening an interdisciplinary dialog, as well as  putting into play the different questions that contemporaneity asks about the body. Knowing their territorial cultural differences, each historical period produces a different concept of body and person, which is intimately connected to what goes around on the artistic, theoretical, technological, social, politic and economic fields that sustain it. From an interdisciplinary point of view, this meeting intends to propose and get on the tracks of an investigation that can favour understanding the construction of corporality in our contemporary context.

    Exodes, déplacements et déracinements

    Revue Elohi n°8

    Pour son prochain numéro, la revue Elohi, Peuples indigènes et environnement se propose de réfléchir sur les liens entre le territoire et les constructions, discours, ressentis identitaires des peuples indigènes, en envisageant notamment la question des déplacements des populations. Devenus étrangers sur la terre de leurs ancêtres depuis la colonisation, les indigènes ont connu des processus de déterritorialisation, reterritorialisation et exodes. Souhaitant également inclure les problématiques brésiliennes à ses travaux, la revue Elohi accueillera des contributions qui examinent la notion de « terre indigène », la démarcation d’un territoire et la représentation que s’en font les peuples indigènes et non-­indigènes.

    Seminar gathering in Lisbon international experts in architecture rehabilitation and urbanism of the Modern Movement. The seminar organized by Docomomo International will take place at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, on the 27th of March. In the last decades, the architectural heritage of the Modern Movement appeared more at risk than during any other period. 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.

    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.

    Palaces and Urban Dynamics: Centers of power and knowledge in Europe

    Palácios e dinâmicas urbanas: centros de poder e de conhecimento na Europa

    The European palaces established more than mere residences of monarchs, princes, cardinals, aristocrats and bourgeois. They were centers of power, solid social and political symbols, and also production centers for culture, arts and science. On the other hand, they played a fundamental role by motivating the renovation and expansion of cities. In a broad sense, we can consider the palace as a center that marked not only the inner spaces, but also its surroundings. Starting from this premise and taking the opportunity of the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the construction of the so called Palácio de D. Manuel in Évora, this is the ideal context for organizing this international conference.

    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.

    Digital Humanities in Portugal: building bridges and breaking barriers in the digital age

    Discussion about the role of the Humanities in academia and society has a long history. The confluence of this debate with the changes brought about by digital technology is not new either: one cannot speak of "new technologies" for the Humanities when many researchers turned to digital methods at least four decades ago, in disciplines as diverse as Linguistics, History or Literary Studies. The Conference “Digital Humanities in Portugal” aims precisely to stimulate these intersections, opening up a forum for discussion and sharing of research results or ongoing projects in this field of knowledge.

    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?

    The heritage and promises of deconstruction

    « La déconstruction n’a pas besoin de la déconstruction », a dit un jour Jacques Derrida en suggérant par là que, de la Déconstruction, ce geste et cet idiome de la pensée philosophique désormais liés à son nom, il y en a, bien malgré nous, à l’œuvre partout et depuis toujours au beau milieu de la civilisation occidentale – et cela comme un signe de notre incondition et comme une flèche télé-po-ét(h)ique tirée vers l’avenir. Comme une promesse ré-inventive d’avenir. D’où l’indéconstructibilité de la Déconstruction : l’immense vulnérabilité de cette pensée est aussi sa force invincible, indéconstructible ; son attention veilleuse au passé à hériter, à bien hériter, ne se distinguant paradoxalement pas d’un lucide rêver l’avenir – une pensée qui, à la limite de la philosophie, aimantée même par cette limite, nous donne et nous appelle à chaque pas à repenser la re-naissance in-finie des savoirs, de même que leur transversalité d’origine : de la Philosophie et de l’enseignement de la Philosophie à la Littérature, de la Psychanalyse aux Arts et à la Culture, de la Politique au Droit et aux Droits Humains, de la Religion, à la Technologie et à la Science, cette pensée impossible, juste et exigeante, traverse les Départements de Philosophie et se trouve à l’œuvre partout aujourd’hui dans l’Institution et dans la vie.

    Digital Humanities and E-Science

    The 1st Workshop on Digital Humanities and e-Science will be held as part of e-Science 2014, with the endorsement of AHDig. The motivation for this workshop starts at the realization that there is an intersection between Digital Humanities and e-Science. The workshop proposes to explore the extent of this intersection, aiming at expanding the common ground, even if the communities have not agreed upon the exact boundaries. With this in mind, this event will present and discuss research in the Humanities with intensive participation of computer resources.
