    História e cultura material da Era Viking

    IX Colóquio de Estudos Vikings e Escandinavos

    A nova edição do Colóquio de estudos Vikings e Escandinavos retoma uma perspectiva mais voltada aos estudos históricos e arqueológicos, imprescindíveis para uma compressão objetiva dos aspectos sociais e culturais envolvendo o período da Alta Idade Média na Escandinávia. A nova edição do evento busca se adequar nas atuais interpretações sobre a História e Historiografia do mundo nórdico, mas também reforçar o estudo das fontes materiais em seus variados aspectos, concedendo aos pesquisadores latino-americanos e falantes da língua portuguesa novas possibilidades de investigações, diálogos e perspectivas.

    New visions on fantasy

    Jangada Journal #18 – Dec. 2021

    Drawing from the history of Fantasy as a genre, this issue of Jangada Journal, from Viçosa Federal University, invites researchers to submit papers on such a pervading category in contemporary literature. We encourage analysis concerning structural and thematic approaches to the genre. We are also interested, in particular, in papers that focus on works insufficiently studied so far, extrapolating Anglophone backgrounds that have engendered Fantasy, and relating diverse media expressions through which Fantasy was disseminated.

    Challenges, Trends and Research: Audiovisual Screenwriting

    From connoisseurs, amateurs, consecrated authors, curious people, to people interested in professionalizing, we have seen the growing interest in Screenplay Writing for Cinema and Audiovisual products, in the last twenty years, in Brazil. Initially, slowly, but then at an exponential pace as a result of market changes, the new perspectives provided by technologies, the possibilities for new expressive and participative experiences, the diversification of distribution formats and platforms and, mainly, the easy access to information on the topic that has fueled this trend. In the professional aspect, the consolidation of ABRA, Brazilian Screenwriters Authors Association - in 2017, resulting from the merger of two previous associations, elevated the professional screenwriter from a previously unstable status and highlighted him towards his autonomy.

    ¡La Nueva Canción da la vuelta al mundo! Conexiones, transferencias y apropiaciones

    A mediados de la década de 1960, surgió y se extendió a lo largo de toda América Latina un movimiento que —bajo los rótulos compartidos de nueva canción, canto nuevo, nueva trova, nuevo cancionero, canto popular y canción de autor, entre otros — tuvo como objetivo reinventar la canción  popular de raíz folclórica. Bajo el contexto de la Guerra fría, numerosos músicos provenientes de diferentes dominios del arte y de áreas culturales heterogéneas se nutrieron de la discusión acerca del antiimperialismo, el internacionalismo, el indigenismo, el socialismo, la recuperación de tradiciones populares, y la difusión de un arte pedagógico. Al incorporar estas reflexiones en la propia práctica del folclor, los músicos transformaron la nueva canción en una respuesta artística  a los problemas globales.

    BOA. Boletín de Arte N°22

    Boletín de Arte convoca a enviar trabajos sobre el tema “Diálogos culturales y transfronterizos. El exilio gallego en Argentina”. La creación artística de los exiliados gallegos en Argentina es el tema clave de este monográfico que gira en torno al devenir del patrimonio en el destierro. Aunque la guerra civil española forzó el éxodo de una amplia generación, sin embargo, permitió la construcción de nuevas redes culturales yel surgimiento deun proceso de inmersión y aculturación. Cómo se llevó a cabo el desarrollo sociocultural de los recién llegados, qué volumen de obra de estos intelectuales forman parte de las colecciones, los museos y los espacios públicos de Argentina, cuál es el estado de conservación y qué iniciativas se han emprendido para su recuperación, son las líneas que se proponen en esta publicación. Asimismo, interesa conocer el puente de intercambio que existió con la Galicia del interior y quehizo posible la puesta en marcha de proyectos artísticos y culturales al otro lado del Océano Atlántico.

    New approaches to the history of soft power in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries

    The study of soft power in the modern period is unequal, with much attention understandably paid to the Cold War when culture offered a surrogate for damaged and blocked political dialogues. But practices that aimed at promoting a nation abroad were not invented after the Second World War, nor were they inexistent before then. Some historians have traced their origins back to the nineteenth century with the formation of nation states (in Europe) and the growth of ministries of foreign affairs.  In addition, the historiography has largely omitted soft power policies produced by and targeting so called “periphery countries”. Therefore, much remains to be written if we are to fully appreciate the history of soft power and its associated key concepts (public and cultural diplomacy, propaganda, publicity, promotion, oeuvres -in the French context, public relations) and the multiplicity of meanings with which these ideas and practices were endowed globally throughout the modern period.

    Figurations and Interlocutions: The Feminine Question in Walter Benjamin’s Oeuvre

    Artefilosofia Journal

    Even though he was a philosopher, not a poet, Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) thought poetically, says Hannah Arendt about his friend and life-long correspondent. In his oeuvre, the feminine appears through recurrent images whose meaning may vary according to the context, in different figurations and fictions. In agreement with these fictional figurations, one of his first essays presents the question of what a feminine culture or a feminine language would be (Metaphysik der Jugend, GS, II, I, 1977).

    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". The texts must describe and analyze the transnational responses following the assassination of the Brazilian Marielle Franco. She was a black woman from the favela, political activist, feminist and lesbian. She was murdered at the corner of a street in Rio de Janeiro in March 2018. Given the political nature of her assassination, many actions denouncing the crime were organized around the world.

    Quantum Social Theory: The Future of Sociology?

    In sociology, without explicit basis on quantum theory, numerous streams established strong similarities with it, setting at the forefront of their paradigm: the subjectivity of the observer, the continuous adjustment between the object and the observer, the impossibility to be fully deterministic or discussions about an objective reality. In this session, we invite panellists to discuss the links that can be drawn between quantum theory and sociology. We welcome both empirical (qualitative or quantitative) as well as theoretical papers. Depending on the variety and the quality of the papers, a publication will be considered to set the basis of this emerging theoretical stream.
