Article included in the thematic issue “Corporativismo e neocorporativismo“.
The institutionalization of the Portuguese authoritarian state had as its main landmark the promulgation of the Political Constitution of 1933. in which the corporate ideology was inscribed More than having a stabilizing profile, it was projected as an ideal of the state project to be built. Though with a wide regulatory range, the Constitution influenced mainly the economic domain. It remains to be studied how the economic and social architecture of the 1933 Constitution was conceived or which political negotiations explain its final design. Taking Jon Elster’s statement that the process of writing a constitution is little explored, both in national case studies and in comparative ones, this article seeks to contribute toward filling in this gap. It will take in consideration the cognitive assumptions of the creators of the Portuguese constitutional text of 1933, as well as their beliefs about the institutional arrangements capable of producing better results.

Scriptures, Classics, and Canons: A Comparative Perspective
Literary canons have been recently submitted to criticism in different Western countries. This tendency can be understood as an attempt to open up space for literary works that have long been ignored. At the same time this process may be related to the so-called decline of Western civilization.
Yuri Slezkine is the “IHC Visiting Scholar 2021” and his current project is a comparative history of sacred texts and their authors, including the Confucian canon, the Sanskrit classics, the Christian, Islamic, and Buddhists scriptures, and the cults of national bards from Homer and Virgil to Shakespeare, Cervantes, Pushkin, and Mickiewicz. In this event he will be joined by historians Diogo Ramada Curto and Luís Trindade, and by literary scholar Manuela Ribeiro Sanches.
