Exodes, déplacements et déracinements">Exodes, déplacements et déracinements

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.

L’étude des objets manufacturés en archéologie médiévale et l’étude des manuscrits enluminés">L’étude des objets manufacturés en archéologie médiévale et l’étude des manuscrits enluminés

O objetivo deste workshop é comparar, por meio da análise de alguns casos específicos, os métodos científicos utilizados no estudo dos manuscritos iluminados (história da arte) e dos artefactos encontrados no âmbito da arqueologia medieval. Em ambas as áreas os contextos de criação e utilização dos objectos são fundamentais para a sua caracterização e compreensão. A partir de casos específicos tentar-se-á traçar semelhanças e diferenças nos métodos de análise que caracterizam as duas disciplinas históricas. Deste modo pretende-se compreender em que medida é possível adaptar e aplicar metodologias diversas de modo a obter um conhecimento mais profundo do objecto e do seu contexto.

Merchants, jurists and other “intermediate groups” in Early Modern Southern Europe">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">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.
