Reading Texts, Reading Objects 3: Identity/ Authority. Studying Intercultural Contacts through Primary Sources

Postgraduate Course 2021-2022
Online (Zoom): 2, 4, 11, 16, 18, 30 Nov. 2021
18.00-20.00 CET

Organizers: Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas-Centro de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales (Madrid, Spain); Interdisciplinary Platform Social & Cultural History of the Mediterranean (MEDhis,
https://pti-medhis.csic.es/)

Director: Therese Martin
Co-Director: Katarzyna Starczewska
Secretary: Verónica Abenza

This course is tailored for the needs of graduate students interested in the different types of detailed analysis of a wide range of
primary sources, both written and material. After the warm welcome received by the two previous editions of this course (CCHSCSIC,
2017 and 2018), the researchers of the Interdisciplinary Platform Social & Cultural History of the Mediterranean (MEDhis, https://pti-medhis.csic.es/), together with a group of national and international researchers, offer the third edition of the course. This year the theme will revolve around the issue of self-representation, understood in its
broadest sense as a strategy aimed at highlighting authority. In the written sources, literal descriptions of identity will be analyzed in order to reveal the strategies designed to establish influence over the interlocutor (reader). Special attention will be paid to religious controversy, prologues to translations, scholarly debates, and inquisitorial documents. As for the material and visual sources, objects and representations that reveal the intentionality of the promoters towards the various viewing publics will be studied.
From a detailed reading of the primary sources, the methodological tools designed to answer the following questions will be discussed: how to approach primary sources with a critical eye? How to contextualize the message they give us? What are the theoretical frameworks suitable for researching these artifacts in a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary way? How to evaluate historical “truth” of sources when written and material texts contradict each other?

Curso livre “História de Lisboa: espaços e sociabilidades”

Curso livre “História de Lisboa: espaços e sociabilidades”

9 outubro de 2021 a 29 de janeiro de 2022
Curso em regime misto, presencial e/ou remoto

Apresentação:
O impacte historiográfico gerado pelo colóquio internacional “Lisboa Iluminista e o seu Tempo”, realizado em 1994, inspirou a criação, sob coordenação do Professor Doutor José-Augusto França e iniciativa da Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa (UAL), do primeiro curso de Estudos Olisiponenses, “Lisboa: Urbanismo e História”, cujo êxito sucessivas edições viriam a consagrar. Se o colóquio de 1994 se assumiu como motivação imediata de uma nova aposta formativa, já a sua razão profunda se escora na tradição historiográfica que, nascida com Júlio de Castilho nos finais de Oitocentos, haveria de tomar o nome de Olisipografia, mas cujos antecedentes se vislumbram já nos meados do séc. XVI, com Damião de Góis. Marco essencial na consolidação dos Estudos Olisiponenses seria protagonizado pelo Instituto de História da Arte da Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas da Universidade Nova de Lisboa (IHA/FCSH-UNL), através da criação de cursos livres de Estudos de Lisboa e, mais recentemente, de um grupo de investigação especificamente vocacionado para este corpus temático. Assumindo heranças e precedências, mas não indiferente ao devir histórico e historiográfico, entende a iniciativa que ora se apresenta, rendendo justa homenagem ao Professor José-Augusto França, reativar os cursos de Estudos Olisiponenses dos anos 90, imprimindo-lhes, contudo, um espírito novo, insuflado pelo contributo conjugado de investigadores de gerações e formações diversificadas, cujos trabalhos permitem oferecer uma estrutura concetual apelativa e atualizada. Numa parceria entre a UAL e o IHA, favorecedora da convergência e cruzamento de experiências e tradições académicas, a presente edição é reflexo da evolução das perspetivas metodológicas, dos domínios temáticos e da produção teórica relativos à Olisipografia, bem assim da evolução da própria história da cidade de Lisboa e dos interesses e expetativas do público. Sob o título geral “História de Lisboa: espaços e sociabilidades”, integra catorze sessões, cujas matrizes de análise se estendem desde a arquitetura e o urbanismo à iconografia, sociologia, política e antropologia. O curso inicia com um primeiro núcleo de palestras, “Lisboa, cidade global”, que proporciona uma perspetiva diacrónica essencial a uma visão panorâmica da história da urbe. Um segundo núcleo, “Novos estudos sobre Lisboa”, versará aspetos inovadores, seja pelo tema, seja pelo referencial teórico adotado, do pensar e estudar a cidade. A formação será complementada por uma sessão cinematográfica sobre Lisboa e por uma visita temática orientada por um dos docentes.

Destinatários:
Interessados na História de Lisboa; profissionais de museus e do património cultural; comunidade académica, público em geral

Objetivos:
Oferecer um conhecimento atualizado e cientificamente sustentado da história da cidade de Lisboa.
Favorecer uma visão poliédrica da cidade, apresentando temas inovadores e abordagens recentes e pluridisciplinares.
Proporcionar a análise crítica das dinâmicas urbanas olisiponenses ao longo da História.

Funcionamento do curso:
O curso compõe-se de catorze sessões, ministradas em língua portuguesa, perfazendo um total de vinte e oito horas, complementadas por uma visita temática e por uma sessão cinematográfica.
As sessões têm a duração de duas horas, período que compreende uma componente expositiva, ministrada pelo docente/palestrante, e uma outra, de cerca de meia hora, de debate relativo ao tema da sessão, baseado nas questões apresentadas pelos participantes e moderado pelo docente/palestrante.
A assistência ao curso poderá assumir a modalidade presencial ou, alternativamente, remota, de acordo com as condições de saúde pública e com a preferência dos destinatários.
As aulas serão ministradas na sede da Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa, Palácio dos Condes de Redondo, Rua de Santa Marta n.º 56, 1169-023 Lisboa, no Auditório II, e contarão com a participação de todos os inscritos que optem pela modalidade de assistência presencial. Os participantes que escolham o regime remoto assistirão às sessões através da plataforma ZOOM, mediante credenciais de acesso a fornecer oportunamente.
A visita temática e a sessão cinematográfica decorrerão em data a definir e estarão abertas a todos os inscritos.
Os participantes que tiverem assistido a um mínimo de 75% das sessões terão direito à obtenção de uma Certificado de Frequência.

CFP: New College Conference on Medieval & Renaissance Studies

We are delighted to announce that planning has begun for the 2022 New College Conference on Medieval & Renaissance Studies, to be held 3–5 March 2022 here in Sarasota. The 2022 CFP and abstract submission guidelines can be accessed here.

We hope that you will consider presenting the work previously accepted for the 2020 Conference this coming March, and wanted you to be the first to know about our rollover policy regarding panels and presentations:

  • Papers and full pre-arranged sessions previously accepted for the 2020 Conference will be automatically accepted for the 2022 Conference as long as presenters notify the Program Committee of their intent to present by the 15 September deadline using the standard abstract submission form.
  • Those whose papers or sessions were accepted for 2020 but who wish to change the topic of their presentations substantially—as well as organizers of pre-arranged sessions who wish to change topics and/or presenters—should submit new proposals. While acceptance cannot be guaranteed given the logistics of rearranging the Conference schedule, these proposals will receive priority consideration by the Program Committee.

We are, of course, also accepting new proposals as usual; please distribute the CFP link (www.newcollegeconference.org/cfp) widely.

One final note: if you have not already done so, please sign up for our new mailing list.

We hope to see you in Sarasota next March!

CFP: Constructing Historical Narrative in Early Modern Europe

Call for Proposals

We are seeking proposals for chapter contributions to an edited volume currently in progress:

At the intersection of reflections on historiographical theory and writing practices, the construction of historical narratives during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries helped make sense of a wide array of human experiences. The process of constructing historical narratives aimed to reinforce the coherence of these human experiences by contextualizing historical ideas within what became deliberately configured, accepted, but also debated and conflictual representations of the past. This collective volume analyzes the strategies that historians of all kinds used and the tactics that historical actors relied on when thinking about their place in early modern societies, in a period marked by religious upheaval, political conflict, changes in the sites of knowledge production, and expanding geographies.
Each contribution will focus on individuals, groups, and sources involved in the construction of historical narratives. Collectively, the volume investigates how social and political relations were reinforced and/or criticized on the local and global levels; how groups of historians formed, communicated, and came to shared definitions of appropriate materials; and, most generally, how historical thinking influenced the deployment of knowledge across time and space. Contributors will collectively analyze four genres of historical narratives that experienced unprecedented booms during the 16th and 17th centuries:

1. Family Histories: This section aims to uncover how family narratives, genealogical texts, and/or images provided ways of establishing personal and small group identities and to examine how familial memory overlapped with larger socio-political concerns. This section also seeks to understand how local knowledge communities of various kinds came to negotiate and define familial identities and genealogical connections, and how other historiographical actors adopted and put these connections to use in an attempt to elaborate broader historical narratives.
2. Community Histories: The second emphasis of the volume examines how localized communities, whether urban, religious, or professional, developed narratives about their pasts, both ancient and recent. It further asks how such narratives interacted and influenced each other, as they were read in parallel and recombined, and what stakes were set in doing so. Ultimately, this section asks to what extent early modern historians were seeking to recompose the general history of Europe from the local and fragmented histories of its cities, corporations, religious bodies, and institutions.
3. Migration Histories: The third part of the volume will study how individual and group migrations, forced or not, fostered the writing of narratives across connected cultural spaces within Europe or beyond. It asks whether these narratives provided a wide array of historical writers with a tool with which to communicate about human socio-political connections across jurisdictional borders and geographical frontiers on a transcultural scale.
4. Readings of Natural and Sacred Environments: The last focus of the volume seeks to reflect on how writing and visualizing the Past–recent or ancient–complemented the aforementioned family, community, and migration narratives by applying historical approaches to non-human sites and subjects, particularly the natural environment, sacralized spaces, and collections.

The volume will be edited by Megan Armstrong, McMaster University; Hilary Bernstein, UC Santa Barbara; and Fabien Montcher, Saint Louis University. We are currently in conversation with an editor about publication.

Each chapter contribution to this volume must address some of the questions raised in at least one of the emphases outlined above and must be in English and no more than 10,000 words, including all notes and images. Contributions will be due by July 1, 2022.

To participate, please send a proposal, in English, of no more than 600 words and a brief c.v. to Megan Armstrong at marmstr@mcmaster.ca by September 1, 2021. You will hear by October 15, 2021 if your proposal to contribute a chapter to the volume has been accepted. We will accept proposals from authors at any stage from advanced graduate students to senior scholars.

For questions, please feel free to send an email to any of the editors, at marmstr@mcmaster.cabernstein@history.ucsb.edu; or fabien.montcher@slu.edu

International Conference: Local Communities and Way of St. James. Alliances and threats

Congresso Internacional Comunidades Locais e Caminho de Santiago. Alianças e Ameaças
(in Portuguese, please find CfP in English below)

Faculdade de Filologia – Universidade de Santiago de Compostela
27-30 outubro 2021

A partir da década de 80 do século passado, os Caminhos de Santiago experimentam uma nova visibilidade internacional de causalidade multifacetada. O interesse das entidades públicas da Galiza por promover o turismo e a imagem do território, a redinamização da construção (também identitária) europeia (da hoje União Europeia) ou, ainda no quadro da Guerra Fria, a ativa intervenção de promoção da Igreja católica, fizeram com que – com data emblemática no evento Xacobeo de 1993 – os Caminhos de Santiago passaram a se converter numa realidade muito presente em numerosos territórios peninsulares e europeus atravessados pelos diferentes itinerários.

No *Congresso Internacional Comunidades Locais e Caminhos de Santiago. Ameaças e alianças* pretende-se colocar a debate e avançar no conhecimento acerca das relações que se estabelecem entre as comunidades locais e o fenómeno jacobeu, assunto porventura menos estudado. Assim, colocam-se questões como as seguintes:

– O que pensam as comunidades locais dos Caminhos?
– O fluxo de pessoas peregrinas aumenta a autoestima e reforça a identidade própria das comunidades ou é perturbador?
– Mudou o seu modo de vida? Melhorou ou piorou?
– É um incentivo para a economia e a produção local?
– Qual é a oferta gastronómica; artesã; cultural?
– Qual é a imagem de quem visita sobre o visitado? E vice-versa?

Estas e muitas outras perguntas pretendem ser objeto de análise num momento crucial, pela dinâmica gerada pelos Caminhos nos últimos trinta anos e pola situação pandémica e pós-pandémica. A visita, a peregrinação são uma aliança ou uma ameaça para as comunidades locais?

Linhas temáticas:

– Turismo sustentável e turismo responsável
– Turismo e comunidades locais
– Caminho e comunidades locais
– Impactos económicos, ambientais, culturais nas comunidades locais
– Produção local e regional e visitantes
– Políticas culturais e turísticas locais
– Tecnologias aplicadas à análise da interação entre caminho, turismo e comunidades locais
– Outros itinerários e comunidades locais

*Data*: 27-30 outubro 2021
*Local do evento*: Faculdade de Filologia – Universidade de Santiago de Compostela
*Modalidade*: presencial
*Submissão de propostas*: até 3 setembro 2021

Call for Papers – Viator journal

Amidst this unique and shared journey, we at Viator continue to believe that looking to the past is an opportunity to shape our present and future. As the journal fills its 50th volume, changes are afoot. Allison McCann is the new publication manager for UCLA’s Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Viator’s landmark volume 50 will contain the last issues assembled under the towering editorship of Henry Ansgar Kelly. Matthew Fisher will take over as the journal’s new editor.

Viator offers a space for renewed attention to the global long Middle Ages, viewed broadly as the period from late antiquity into early modernity, while continuing its long-standing tradition of publishing articles of distinction in the established fields of Medieval and Renaissance Studies. In keeping with its title, ‘traveler,’ the journal gives special consideration to articles that cross frontiers, focusing on meetings between cultures, pursuing an idea through the centuries, or employing methods of different disciplines simultaneously, while remaining accessible to the non-specialist reader. We particularly welcome articles that look beyond Western Eurasia and North Africa and consider the history, literature, art, and thought of the medieval and Renaissance periods from a global perspective.

With a revised and forward-looking mission statement, we are currently seeking articles of 8,000 – 13,000 words. Viator is also interested in featuring edited clusters of shorter articles (2000–3,500 words each). We eagerly look forward to publishing our first cluster, “Looking Ahead: Global Encounters in the North Atlantic, ca. 350–1300,” edited by Nahir Otaño Gracia, Nicole Lopez-Jantzen, and Erica Weaver, and featuring urgent interventions by early-career scholars.

To submit an article to Viator or to propose a cluster, please contact Allison McCann (allisonmccann@humnet.ucla.edu). Submissions guidelines can be found in https://cmrs.ucla.edu/publications/submit/
