Abstract

In the continuation of what has been produced in the series "Risks and Disasters", this volume assumes the thematic continuity, in a more systematic and holistic logic. It concerns, in particular, the theme of "Anthropic disasters. An integral approach", so it is a very unusual character. Let's say that the type of risks it deals with, the synthesis nature it presents and the organizational structure chosen, gives it a singular character in the contemporary world context. In the path of anthropic disasters, two major risk groups were considered, namely technological and social. The first relate to structural systems to support human activity, such as transport, civil construction, urban spaces (fires, waste) and water resources. The second is associated with social action, and it addresses issues ranging from conflict to Urbicicide.

A very old and common culture is basketry and matting, which plays an extremely utilitarian role, targeting multiple sectors: agriculture, fishing, trade, storage and drying of products and for domestic use. A wide variety of raw materials are available: palm leaf strips, baobab bark, pineapple or sisal leaf fibers, grass varieties and other plant products. The interweaving of these results in materials design skilled and ingenious demonstrated by the different techniques and models. Basketwork techniques vary between the technique of interlocking, interlacing and the spiral technique, but there are other auxiliaries of various kinds. Geometric and colorful designs give this art of weaving an imprint of remarkable beauty. (Baskets Macondes: n.rs 10, 11 and 12). […] [MARIA DO ROSÁRIO RODRIGUES MARTINS]

Abstract

In this work we try to make an approach to the shared history between two brothers countries and not always friends such as Portugal and Spain and the atlantic projection that has presided over much of its historical evolution and is also an essential part of its contemporary foreign policy. A dialogue that also acquires different nuances, since the same concept of atlanticity has different connotations for Spain and Portugal. From these various perspectives, Spain and Portugal continue to have an important mission in the challenges in today's world as interlocutors and transmission belts between different global spaces. This historical evolution and the new challenges of the atlantic world are intended to be addressed in the texts of the authors presented to them in this dossier and that address very diverse historical periods from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day. Facing the most diverse possible perspectives, whether political, geostrategic, economic, social and cultural.

Abstract

"If we revisit Father António Vieira in the 21st century, we inevitably recognize in him the plurality of approaches [...]: first of all, he was (and is) a thinker of our culture and of the politics of his time, developing themes that demarcate what we call his actuality; and it is certainly not banal to trace a sense of actuality evident in those who lived, thought, preached and wrote over three centuries ago. That is so, but it is not just about that. The legacy of Father Antonio Vieira is also projected, until today, in our language, in the imaginary of his great cultists, in the arts and in his presence in the educational system. The texts we can read here attest well to what is said: the image of Vieira in our historiography, the epistolography and his cult, the prophetic work and the questions to which he invites, the audacity of theological thought, the path of life (a path that made this great figure almost a character of fiction, as the cinema confirmed), the political intervention to which he did not dodge, the unparalleled contribution he gave to sacred oratory".

Abstract

"Revisiting Vieira in the 21st Century is a unique and necessary work, consisting of a fundamental set of reflections around ten nuclei, which allow us to visit the master in order to know him better in the light of modern times. And so we find, at each step, the demonstration of the geniality of the speaker and of the man of culture, as well as a constant appeal, which current events cannot forget, regarding the consecration of human dignity. The ten nuclei have a strong analytical and pedagogical sense, allowing us to know and understand a unique source in Portuguese culture: biography, historiography and reception - to integrate ourselves in the life path of the genial author; epistolography and interlocutors - to understand the importance of his intervention; theology and spirituality - to understand the fundamentals of what he tells us; visions of the future: prophetic work - to consider his capacity for anticipation; politics and society - to understand the importance of political commitment, in a time full of uncertainties and threats; sacred oratory and rhetoric: arts, uses and senses - to take care of the creation workshop of the unique artist; literature and art - to continue to scrutinize the enchanting capacity of the craftsman; polemic writings and the vision of the other - to deal with the courage and determination of the intellectual; science and nature - to realize the genuine attraction that he had for knowledge; and pedagogy and didactics - to put ourselves in the position of those who wish to learn the most from Vieira's lesson. ”

Abstract

This volume provides an interdisciplinary, multifaceted view of a key period of the making and remaking of the European artistic, cultural and political landscape at the turn from the eighteenth to the nineteenth century. It focus on the relationships between Lisbon and Turin as a prime analyzer of the main forms of sociability and circulation of objects, knowledge, tastes, styles of government and public policies upon which a new European geopolitical panorama was erected, extending as well to the overseas territories. The variety of approaches deployed in the volume are unified by a broad notion of cultural history which includes on an equal footing the visual and the scientific, the material and the political culture. The studies in this volume underline the crucial importance of the transfer of tastes and habitus, and the associated emergence of new forms of sensibility, in shaping the transition from Enlightenment to the Post-Napoleonic Europe.

Abstract

The book "Interdisciplinary visions of Europe and the World", is a tribute to Maria Manuela Tavares Ribeiro. This timely tribute is the just recognition of her work and her intellectual and human dimension. This work represents a sample, on the one hand, of the diversity within the Europeanism, Atlanticity and Globalization Group, and on the other, of how it is possible to establish interdisciplinary bridges between the many scientific areas represented in the research group. To embark on an interdisciplinary adventure is to depart from our comfort zone. It is an adventure, because the path can be winding, the difficulties are often greater than were expected, and the result is normaly unpredictable. It generates discomfort, because the practice of interdisciplinarity obliges us to understand different languages, to explain several times what seems obvious, to consensualize concepts, to negotiate methods, to compromise in principles that were considered, from the point of view of each science, unquestionable.
