Geohistorical Applications, Methods and Theories in GIScience
This event is organised by the Universtià di Pisa, Universidade de Brasilia, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa and the University of Lancaster is open to researchers interested in the field of GIS application in the humanities. Between June 26th to 28th 2019 we will discuss and examine new ways and methods to represent and analyse time in the GISciences. Scholars from any discipline are invited to join us to share their experiences and case studies with a wide multidisciplinary community of researchers engaged in the main topics of the conference. Speakers should submit an abstract to the scientific committee for evaluation. As the official language of the conference is English, submission and presentation should be of the same language. Conference proceedings will be published as a special volume by spring 2020.
Some of the most significant obstacles in GIScience are the description, explanation and visualization of time. Cartographic representation of transformation, evolution and historical changes have always been a challenging and stimulating task for cartographers, researchers and scientists.
However, in the last three decades, revolutionary possibilities have been introduced by innovative digital tools that have offered to a large group of scholars – from a vast disciplinary range – the opportunity to explore new empirical solutions and applications for the spatial analysis and cartographic representation of time. Although technological advances have transformed the way we think, talk, and the tools we use, there has been a lack of critical and epistemological debate on the techniques, methods and theories for the representation of time within the GISciences.
We feel that there is a need for an interdisciplinary exchange concerning the main issues related to GIS applications in the study of historical processes.
Our aim is to join the scattered experiences conducted on multiple scientific fields in a collective dialogue. The objective is to share ideas and insights amongst researchers involved in the analysis and representation of changes by means of new digital cartographic technologies. It is by means of exchange that we aim to promote a wider awareness of the significant role and impact that these issues have for us and our research.

A lecture and workshop, with Ian Haywood, about British caricature in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Rude Britannia: The golden age of British caricature
On the 26th of June, at 6PM, at the Bordalo Pinheiro Museum, in Lisbon, Professor Ian Haywood (University of Roehampton, London) will present the lecture “Rude Britannia: the golden age of British caricature“, where he will highlight the main authors and analyse the subjects and topics of British caricatures in the 18th and 19th centuries.
After the lecture, there will be a workshop abou the use of caricatures as historic sources — Working With Caricatures.
About the speaker:
Ian Haywood is the Director of the Centre for Research in Romanticism (University of Roehampton, London), President of the British Association for Romantic Studies and one of the coordinator of the Romantic Illustration Network. Among other books, he has authored Romanticism and Caricature (Cambridge University Press, 2013) and The Rise of Victorian Caricature (to be published in 2020).

An international conference, hosted by the IHC, that aims to answer questions about the role of satire in defining national identities. Call is open until
15 November 2018 31 December 2018.
Representations of the Self and the Other in the Satiric Image:
From the French Revolution to Today
“Marianne” (in France), “John Bull” (in England) or “Zé Povinho” (in Portugal), just like “Uncle Sam” (in the United States) or “Juca Pato” (in Brazil) are popular graphic expressions that can be presented as clear examples of national type that are consistently identifiable from the beginning of the 18th century until today. The persistence, in collective memory of these kinds of iconographic projections shows the capacity that this type of imagery has to consolidate itself and further shows the overall poswer of visual culture.
Caricature and cartoon, as expressions of graphic satire, have gained in importance in the Western world ever along with the expanded reach of the press during the long nineteenth century. In this way, newspapers and magazines have both served and resorted to artists in order to transmit messages with political content throughout a period marked by the massive growth of information. The specialized illustrated satiric press saw the light of day and developed beginning in 1830, in France and Great Britain, or in the following decade, as was the case in Portugal. We can’t neglect the fact that caricature and the satiric image were the first and often the only contemporary records of events and they were presented as a responses to public reactions to political and social evolution. Their goal not so much to expose reality as to reflect and provide comment on the attitudes and values produced in their time by the whole of society. After all, illustrated discourse also served as an instrument of dissemination of ideological values.
However, the historiography of the theme of nationalism and of the era in which it took root has rarely valued the satirical image insofar as it might be a contributing instrument of the fashioning of identity in a given period. Some studies contradict conventional narratives (Gardes, 1990, Koch, 1990 et 1997, Hunt, 2003, Lustosa, 2011) and observe cultural stereotypes either by denial or by assimilation. This conference aims to bring together scholars devoted to study of the social and political impact of the satirical image according to a chronological arc that extends from the French Revolution and the “Golden Age” of British caricature up to our own time. The objective will be to analyse how pertinent this satirical, and certainly humorous genre can be for the study of the composition of national identities, in a long-term comparative perspective.
Call for papers
The conference, organised by the Institute of Contemporary History at NOVA FCSH, seeks to answer the following questions:
- Which common ideas, which targets and which attitudes expressed by the satirical press helped fashion the concept of nation?
- Who were the “others” represented by the satirical image, in opposition to which “us”?
- How were the visions and representations of the “other”, as opposed to the “self”, expressed by the satirical image helpful in defining national identities, in constructing the notion of community and in shaping national stereotypes?
Paper proposals of no more than 500 words should be sent to email@example.com
