    The Pleasures of Reading: State(s) of the Art

    Le sens commun nous dit que lire un texte littéraire est tout simplement et avant tout de l’ordre du plaisir (Compagnon 1998), sa réhabilitation étant dès lors aussi celle des modalités de la récupération et du renouvellement du « plaisir du texte » (Barthes 1973) et des plaisirs de lire. Même le caractère souvent ludique, ironique et citationnel de la fiction contemporaine, qui met souvent en jeu « (…) un extérieur qui se veut littéraire, il ne s’adresse qu’à des déjà lecteurs » (Demoulin 1997: 11), ne restreint pas ce plaisir, mais le déploie et le complexifie. En outre, dans un contexte amplement marqué par internet et les réseaux sociaux, on observe l’émergence et le développement de nouvelles modalités de lecture liées à l’apparition de nouveaux supports numériques, lesquels favorisent une co-élaboration du texte, et induisent une logique interactive avec de nouvelles formes de sociabilité lectrice fondées sur de nouvelles formes de partage des plaisirs de lire.

    When women film: the documentary in the Iberian peninsula and in the Latin-American continent

    Ce colloque international et interuniversitaire aura pour objet l'étude de la production documentaire réalisée par des femmes des pays de la péninsule ibérique ou du continent latino-américain. Il a pour visée de repenser, dans une perspective transdisciplinaire, les cadres épistémologiques de l’analyse de l’image documentaire. Il réfléchira aux manières dont les films documentaires, maintenus dans une double marginalité, celle du documentaire et celle due au statut des femmes, ont agi comme des opérations d’intelligibilité du monde.

    39th Société des hispanistes français conference

    Le XXXIX congrès de la Société des hispanistes français se tiendra à l'université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour du 6 au 8 juin 2019.

Quelles en sont les spécificités et les évolutions au cours des siècles et/ou au sein des territoires hispano/lusophones dans leur diversité ? Ces spécificités, si elles existent, conduisent-elles à renouveler les réflexions sur la notion de frontière ?

    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.

    Slave subjectivities in the Iberian Worlds (15th- 20th centuries)

    Les récits de vies d'esclaves semblent beaucoup moins courants dans les mondes ibériques que, par exemple, anglo-américains. Ils sont pourtant une source de première importance pour comprendre les subjectivités des esclaves eux-mêmes. D'autres sources (archives de l'Inquisition, actes notariés, actes de manumission, etc.) peuvent parfois permettre de traquer cette voix des sans-voix. Ce colloque, organisé en commun par l'Instituto de ciências sociais (Lisbonne) et la Casa de Velázquez / École des hautes études hispaniques et ibériques (Madrid), voudrait permettre d'avancer dans l'étude de la vision des asservis, dans le cadre ibérique.

    Waste Sciences, Knowledges and Practices

    European, North and Latin American perspectives

    Waste has emerged as a main environmental, economic and social issue in the last fifty years. The convergence of interests from various fields of reflection and action suggests a potential and fruitful “epistemological turn”. Yet this process is still on the verge of formalization. Research and decision on waste organizational and representational systems remain either fragmented or dependent on local context though some waste management recommendations arise from worries on the global consequences of discard. Hence this international symposium aims at opening transatlantic conversations between academic, technical and artistic areas in order to clarify how waste challenges our everyday sciences, knowledges and practices.

    The Great War and the Azores: from naval strategy to trench warfare

    This meeting aims to analyze the relationship of the Atlantic, with particular emphasis on the Azores, the complex logistical support to the belligerents, regardless of the stage of war being European or colonial, and the multiple dynamics involved, whether political, economic, ideological or geographical. Likewise, it seeks to value and dignify not only the memory of those who act as, but the material and immaterial heritage, in the year in which the bombing of the main Azorean city and the creation of a foreign naval base in its territory is evoked.

    The New Medieval Lisbon 1147-1217

    The Ways of the West and the East

    Between the 23rd and 25th of October 2017, the Institute for Medieval Studies (IEM) will organize the V colloquium “The New Medieval Lisbon”. The commemorative evocation of the conquests of Lisbon in 1147 and of Alcácer do Sal in 1217 is the pretext for a broader debate not only around these events, their meaning and impact, but also on its wider context, and on the diversity of the ways that, at the time, were being shaped and reshaped, both in the peninsular context and in the wider scenarios which linked the West to the East.

    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.

    The October Revolution

    III International Congress Karl Marx

    The October Revolution of 1917 was one of the most significant events of the modern era. Its historical meaning can be understood, on the one hand, within the narrative of previous revolutions – starting with the 1789 French Revolution – and of the rise of the labour movement in the nineteenth-century. On the other hand, 1917 also paved the way to several other twentieth-century events and phenomena, such as the Chinese Revolution or the post-colonial turn. On its hundredth anniversary, the Institute for Contemporary History organizes an international conference dedicated to the study and discussion of the October Revolution and its consequences.

    The role of small towns in building Medieval Europe

    It is our aim to promote an approach to urban studies which, repeatedly but discontinuously, appears on the horizon of historical, geographical, sociological and anthropological research, always with a certain stigma as an inferior and unattractive subject of analysis. Inferior, because each time it has been considered on a comparative scale, it comes up against the variability of definitions of its designating attribute. It is unattractive inasmuch as it is not satisfied by scientific approaches rooted in the intention to capture decisive and major development processes. By combining several scientific areas, this conference aims to give a voice to the small towns of a Medieval Europe, increasingly perceived as "moving".

Par delà les pratiques d'écriture propres aux auteurs mystiques et ascétiques, les contribution d'études replaceront la médiatisation du texte ascétique dans son rapport à la norme juridique et canonique.
