Annual meeting of the IHC aiming to identify and discuss the new challenges for the study of the contemporary period and where the new Imprensa de História Contemporânea will be launched.
Futuros da História — História Contemporânea
[Futures of History — Contemporary History]
This edition of the annual “Futuros da História” meeting is entirely dedicated to identifying and discussing the new challenges facing researchers specialising in the study of the contemporary period. Starting in 2019, the Institute of Contemporary History, within the framework of its strategic project, will host five new thematic lines of research, which will seek to build bridges between the different research groups, as well as bring the Institute closer to colleagues from other national and international centres of research, both in the field of History and in other disciplines, from the Social Sciences to the Natural Sciences.
During the course of the day, a part of the programme will be devoted exclusively to the presentation of these new thematic lines and to the discussion of the possibilities they open up. There will also be a round-table specifically dedicated to discussing the state of research around Contemporary Portugal, as well as a conference on the relations between historians and states over the last decades. The day will end with the launch of the first books to be published by the newly created Imprensa de História Contemporânea [Contemporary History Press].

A workshop organised by the IHC with the Museu Nacional de História Natural e da Ciência and the Museu Nacional de Arqueologia. Breaking
Breaking silences with object-centred approaches
Heritage objects have the capability to break silences surrounding the history of science, collecting and knowledge production practices. By retracing the objects trajectory this enriches historiographical narratives as regards museums and their historic collections, their processes of the formation, transfer, dispersal, sale and, sometimes, disappearance. This methodology highlights the heterogeneous nature of actors and sites that channeled objects to museums, as well as the existence of extensive networks of communication and collaborative work.
This workshop intends to consider object-centered approaches reflecting on how these methodologies can be used to communicate global and local histories on the emergence and development of scientific culture and the latent potentials of innovative exhibition practices based on the invisibilities of the history of collections and museums.
The participation in the workshop requires a pre-registration, by completing this form which should be sent to the email email@example.com
The registration is free.
