The Portuguese Centre for Global History (CHAM) is an inter-University research unit of the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa and of the Universidade dos Açores, funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia.CHAM’s team includes researchers from different disciplinary fields (Archaeology, Art History, Heritage, Literature, Philosophy and History of ideas), different domains of History (Economic, Cultural, Political, Social, Religious, History of Science and History of books and reading practices) and specialists from various geographic spaces. From 2015, CHAM’s strategic project will focus on “frontiers”. This multi-disciplinary project will consider frontiers as limits that distinguished, throughout history, a plurality of societies and cultures, but also as social and cultural constructs that promoted communication and interaction.
The conference is organised by the team at NomadIT
