This time, however, the kind of works under consideration will be illuminated manuscripts. This three-day Conference aims thus to conduct a critical and constructive revision of research on Iberian Book Illumination in the Middle Ages, proposing new questions to be discussed.

    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.

    Las Vanguardistas: Spanish Women Poets in Transnational Contexts (1920–1975)

    Spanish avant-garde poetry has traditionally been associated with the “Generation of 1927”, a group of male poets that has dominated critical discussions of literary history for almost a century. Studies that have embraced the generational model have often considered the Spanish avant-garde either as a unique national phenomenon or as an imitation of foreign literary models. This special issue challenges these views by considering women’s participation in avant-garde circles in and beyond Spain and placing the Spanish avant-garde in a transnational context.

    The Iberian East Indies

    Frontiers, Actors, Dynamics

    The historiography of imperial Spain and of the Iberian-initiated first globalization has recently been renewed by the study of exchanges between Asia and America and of the Spanish Pacific. The purpose of this one-day seminar is to further this historiographical renewal and to shed some new light on the Iberian East Indies, at a time when Spain and Portugal were the two main European powers in the region. The focus will be put on exchanges, dynamics of cooperation and rivalry between empires and also between various key actors: missionaries, merchants, soldiers and officials. The aim is thus to improve our understanding of the multiple connections between the Asian territories of both empires.

    Arts and Models of Democracy in post-authoritarian Iberian Peninsula

    This two-day conference aims to innovatively question how artistic practices and institutions formed ways of imagining democracy and by what means arts and culture participate in the wider social struggle to define freedom and equality for the post-Estado Novo and post-Francoist period: how did artistic practices instantiate ideas of democracy in this context? Inversely, how did such democratic values inform artistic practice? How did Portuguese and Spanish artists and intellectuals negotiate between creative autonomy and social responsibility? And more broadly, what is the role of culture in a democracy? The core purpose of the conference is to bring scholars together from different subject areas and exploring any artistic practice (literature, visual and plastic arts, cinema and music).

    The creative process in portuguese film: materialities

    The term “materialities”, when applied to cinema, convokes the different areas that interact in the materialisation of a film project: choice of recording support, art direction, costumes, sound, light (amongst many others). The aim of this conference is to promote debate around the communicative and expressive powers inscribed in the many elements that comprise an oeuvre, apprehending filmmaking as a complex process apportioned between different teams; a process which culminates in a final work that is inevitably “inter-artistic”, since a wide range of arts and crafts have collaborated in the construction of the cinematic object.

    Islamic heritage in Europe

    Over the past decades, there has been a growing interest among scholars in analysing how the Islamic heritage in Europe has been perceived, described, preserved, erased, negotiated or transformed in different areas of Europe, from medieval to modern times. However, those debates seldom crossed the borders of regional approaches. The aim of this training school is to discuss those issues from different and complementary perspectives, including art history, but also philosophy, history of science or anthropology, and to question the traditional regional narrative through a comparative examination of Islamic monuments in a wider Mediterranean perspective.

    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.
